The Anatomy of Amanda Fucking Palmer: An Inside Look

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Look at the inner workings of a multi-million dollar global recording, touring and merchandise business that is 100% artist controlled. Amanda Palmer raised a record-breaking $1,192,793 on Kickstarter from 24,883 fans -- an average of nearly $50 per person -- to fund her album "Theatre is Evil" last May. A few months later, pre-sale tickets for her worldwide tour sold out for every city in hours, and her album debuted on the Billboard Top 10. Learn how her team managed the album release campaign. From the wild successes to hair-pulling deadlines to the inevitable mistakes, Palmer and her management and business partners will speak frankly on what it takes to run such a ground-breaking business at this level.
