The daytime event will consist of several music industry panel discussions focusing on topics that will be of interest to all musicians working in the South West. These include:

Gigging & Touring – Breaking out of your hometown
Festivals: The Holy Grail? – How to get noticed by programmers
Show Us The Money! – Exploring various income streams for musicians
Building The Buzz – How to build your fan base and rise above the noise
The Dream Team – Building a professional team around the artist

Several music industry professionals will be joining us, and some of these include: James Santer (BBC Introducing); John Empson (Eden Sessions / Somersault Festival / Emperor Artist Management); Oli James (Tour Manager: Ben Howard / PMC); Kaptin Barrett (Boomtown Festival Programmer); Matt Freemantle (Director of Lemonfest); Steph Knight (Domino PR); Sarah Woodward (Artist Manager: These Reigning Days); Sarah Lacey (On Track Music), and many more.

There will also be a half-hour debate focusing on the thorny issue of whether musicians should ever accept unpaid gigs – if so, why and under what circumstances should they do this? For more information about the topics under discussion, as well as a full list of guest speakers, please click here.
