“On Tour” is Melting Pot’s touring guide for independent songwriters and bands who are putting together tours in Australia and beyond. Having spoken to so many artists within the Melting Pot community about their experiences, we realised there was an enormous collective knowledge base. We hope that this guide can not only help artists have successful, positive tour experiences and avoid mistakes of those that have gone before them, but also give some well-deserved recognition to the venues and organisations that are working hard to create supportive environments for touring artists. We are aiming this primarily at solo singer-songwriters but think it will mostly be applicable to small bands as well. We know that the guide is likely to go out of date and that this is a very subjective thing - so if you see something that’s wrong or if you’ve got something to add, then please let us know in the comments below.
