3/12, Links We Like: #KickstarterMusic Edition

As you read this, the Kickstarter Music Team, members of our Film Team, and countless creators, musicians, and filmmakers are all getting ready to head to SXSW. And even though we won’t all be in Austin, we look forward to sharing some of the action on our blog and on KickstarterTips. The only thing missing are those delicious breakfast tacos…Bring some back for us, team!

If you are heading to SXSW, here’s where you can catch our team and creators that’ll be representing their music, films, games, and more. If you’re staying away from the action, we’ve included all of the hashtags and handles you need to follow along, wherever you are.


Get insider tips on running a music campaign from musicians that have used Kickstarter and a few members of our Outreach Team, #CreatorHangouts style!



And now a special shout-out to some of the companies on our Resources Page that offer tools for musicians. We love this guide to marketing your music on a budget from CD Baby. Oasis Disc Manufacturing offers free templates for cd booklets, posters, and more. And Disc Makers offers guides on everything from social media to songwriting.
