Being an artist is not easy, in any part of the world, but here in South Florida the creative community faces a particularly challenging set of obstacles. While working with our extensive network of local artists over the last 10 years we have repeatedly witnessed them encounter the same set of roadblocks. The Miami and South Florida region present a set of alluring assets that attract musicians from around the world.
This geographical location is a trend leader for both dance music and entertainment standards around the world. This same unique set of assets also serves to create an environment of fierce competition within the music community. Talent management, booking agents, and performance venues all fight for limited market share. This forces artists to align with singular entities to get the exposure they need for their music and eliminates the collaborative space that is so often the catalyst for incredible art.
This is where RTMG identified a need in our market. Following our guiding principle of growth through strategic collaboration we created the SFL Producer Group, to help guide aspiring musicians through the often tumultuous process of growing a fan base and creating a space for themselves to monetize their art.
RTMG is extremely proud to say that since the launch of the South Florida Producer Group in September of 2017 we have been able to help our members book more than 60 major shows including large placements with dance music giants like Diplo. We’ve hosted numerous top tier industry speakers focused on career development, and have successfully been the catalyst for a transition in the conversation from the competitive “for me to win you have to lose” mentality once pervasive in South Florida, to a more collaborative and supportive unified music scene.
