Want to reach the pre-teen market with your music? Here's an unusual appproach - a tour of summer camps.
In July 2003, the first Camplified tour was launched at 15 camps with artists from Island, Capitol, Atlantic, and Columbia Records. The tour has continued to grow reaching 40 camps in six weeks in 2005 and will do at least the same in 2006.After the concert, campers get to talk with the musicians, have their photograph taken with them and receive signed autographs. Merchandise booths are set up at most camps for the artists to sell their posters, tshirts, CDs etc.
Artists participating in the tour pay a fee to offset production costs which includes but not limited to sound equipment, sound crew, tour crew etc. These fees range approximately $750.00 a day. hree to four artists will perform at each tour date. If you have artists interested in participating you can contact Aimee Berger at 212 842 8478 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
