JPN has carried out some research for Dutch Performing Arts on opportunities for Dutch artistes in the UK and Republic of Ireland. Many JPN members took part in a survey relating to ‘brand awareness’ of leading Dutch bands and the likelihood that they would book these bands.
In order to identify and assess artists that would be appropriate for promotion by JPN members, it was seen as essential that there should be opportunities for promoters to hear the musicians playing live to audiences, in Holland or the UK and RoI, with other digital opportunities used to complement this experience.
A programme of invitations for JPN members (including broadcasters and journalists as well as promoters) to festivals and events in Holland has taken place. The feedback from these visits is being used to draw up a shortlist of artistes who are seen as being most attractive for UK tours.
