DIY Touring The World: UK

9:46 am on 19 May 2016

In part four of DIY Touring The World, Ian Jorgensen finds himself in the UK. As a hub for the music industry, it's a magnet for artists looking to “make it”. With more supply than demand, it’s turned into a difficult place for a touring band.

Music impresario Ian Jorgensen has been touring bands and throwing parties for the last fifteen years. In this six part series he details his experiences of the musical underground around the world, speaking with musicians, promoters and venue operators in China, America, Europe, the UK, Australia and New Zealand.
