All artists have dodgy promoter stories to share. The music scene has suffered from a systemic culture of unethical promoters, competitions and even venues unfairly taking advantage of artists and bands stretching back decades. Despite young, inexperienced artists being warned, and these promoters repeatedly called out and shamed, they have just continued to change their names, mutate and survive much like a Covid variant. So its a very great day indeed to announce and celebrate the launch of the FAC Kitemark for Independent Promoters. Its a fair trade symbol awarded to artist friendly organisations and this Promoter Kitemark is being awarded to qualifying promoters in partnership with the Association of Independent Promoters. We are very proud indeed to add the Kitemark to our Success Express website today and continue to put the interests of artists at the heart of each and every show.
