Norwegian live biz grows to four-year high 

The value of the Norwegian music industry grew to a four-year high in 2015, with the live sector once again accounting for a majority of music revenue.
Total turnover increased 5% to 3.73 billion krone (kr) – roughly US$440 million – and live revenue 4%, to 1.93bn kr ($228.87m), on 2014, generated from ticket sales in Norway and artist fees from concerts outside Norway, reveals a new report by the Norwegian Arts Council (Kulturrådet). The figure is the highest since the council began compiling its Music in Numbers reports, in 2012.
Export income from concerts, however, fell 6% to 114 million kr ($13.7m), with a “fall in artist fees” blamed.

Busting The Myth That Artists Don’t Need Record Labels And Producers

Over the recent years, there’s been a lot of hype over self-releasing tracks and cynicism directed at labels, and while there are many arguments in favour of going it alone, the beloved record label is definitely far from being redundant.  It needn’t be a chore sending demos to record labels – major and independent labels are always looking for artists. From creative direction to distribution and promotion, there’s a whole lot more to putting a record out than just making it available on Beatport/Juno/Track source et al, which is why ”it’s a myth that artists don’t need labels anymore”.
