One of the biggest challenges in music historically and currently is the lack of resources and exposure for independent artists and the labels they work with. There's also a challenge providing adequate and consistent performance venues of which they can perform, improve, and build an audience base.

We know that each educated entrepreneur we help grow helps create new jobs and connective opportunities. Venues and access is critical and we hear it louds and clear from but the creatives and the influencers they serve.

Diverse and Independent Artists: Small music festivals often provide a platform for emerging, independent, and local artists who may not have the opportunity to perform at larger, more mainstream festivals.
