Highlights of Previous Concerts
DesiYUP is attending the Dutch Trade Mission to India 2019. During this trade mission, DesiYUP is Live Blogging the many activities is is participating in.
I am always honored to read emails sent by musicians or bands from across the globe. It’s good to know that DesiYUP is visible as an event organizer and that artists are interested to work with us. But dearest musicians and bands: offering your art for free is not the right approach to establish a relationship built on mutual respect and equality. There are many event organizers and concert promoters who take advantage of upcoming talent. They are eager to make artists perform for free and earn some easy money. This irresponsible attitude damages the entire live performing scene in my opinion.
