Introduction


As requested by the project sponsor the purpose of this assignment is to plan an international music tour spanning across six destinations. In order to accomplish the plan, all aspects of the project are to be analysed by the project group and then divided into more defined sections and manageable tasks, which will result in the completion of a successful plan for an international music tour.


The completed plan is then to be presented by the project sponsor to the project client, Artic Music Corporation. Once completed the project plan should succinctly provide detailed information that will grant approval for the project to go ahead.







Project Description
Students where asked to do a project in there first term of school, There were a couple of options to choose from, like for example you could do a “sports event” a “fashion show”. Our groups choose to plan a six-destination international music tour. Since these days people are engage and aware of multicultural music genres the group/team though that we had to pick music groups that will fit for a wider audiences.


Since music has been inspiration and an integral part of every culture. Music informs us about our past and presents, but also foreshadows our future. It’s a creative outlet for self-expression that involves/integrates all disciplines and has the power to inspire and people/individuals or society’s. Music is one aspect of cross-cultural and cross-generational communication.


Artic Music Corp, approached our company and wanted us to represent them as there clients, and creating/developing a music tour across Europe. And they asked us to create it so that if was not only “pop” music but alternatives so that fans of Hiphop/Rap, Punk, Heavy metal and rock would like to come and enjoy this.


The purpose of this project, Artic Music is to explore if music from Scandinavia, Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Finland and Iceland band that are big and popular in there home countries can be big in the rest of Europe. Which could be an interesting thing to found out, because many bands in Great Britain have failed to make it big in America for some strange reason?


And the reason for this is because Artic Music Corp which is a small but up and coming record/marketing company wants to open a couple of new offices across Europe and launch a big marketing plan, marketing Bands from Scandinavian countries and bands/groups that are singed to the record company Artic music Corp.


However the goal with this scheme is to gain fans and show that other countries that make good music, and compete on the world music map. The way it looks now is on billboards is that the majority of music is created in America or in the UK. Sweden is already know for making good music and Finland is starting to making a name for it self. Iceland has Björk who is quiet reputable and famous within the music industry.
