Title: The Anatomy of Amanda Fucking Palmer Enterprises
Description: The Anatomy of Amanda F*cking Palmer Enterprises - Soup to Nuts. AKA, an “inside look” at how a multi-million dollar global recording, touring and merch business that is 100% artist controlled and run actually works.
Amanda Palmer raised $1,192,793 on Kickstarter from 24,883 fans — an average of nearly $50 per person, to fund her album “Theatre is Evil.” Her team created a revolutionary deal with Alliance to fulfill all the Kickstarter orders. Topspin stepped in to power Amanda’s global tour presales.
A panel comprising of AFP’s management Girlie Action, Kickstarter, and Topspin will present a case study outlining exactly how the team pulled off this groundbreaking campaign. From the wild successes to hair-pulling deadlines to the inevitable mistakes, this is the tell-all special of SXSW. (Amanda F*cking Palmer will be in Europe but will provide her record of events on video and can record answers to fan questions in advance of the panel.)
