We are very happy to announce that Chris Anderton, Associate Professor and lecturer on the BA Hons Music Business course at Solent University has recently c0-edited and published a new book about the live music industries.
Researching Live Music offers an important contribution to the emergent field of live music studies. It features numerous case studies that examine the production, promotion, consumption, and policy implications of the live music and festivals sector. These case studies expand our knowledge of how live music events work and they extend beyond the familiar contexts of the United States and United Kingdom to include examples drawn from Argentina, Australia, France, Jamaica, Japan, New Zealand, Switzerland, and Poland.
It represents a crucial reading for professionals, students, and researchers working in all aspects of live music.
