Sound Industry is a brand new music conference for the South West, which aims to challenge and inspire individuals working across all aspects of the vibrant musical landscape of Bristol and beyond. The conference will host some of the UK’s leading music industry professionals in a day-long program of thought-provoking panel discussions, workshops, and keynote speeches.
Hosted by Bristol Women In Music, the conference aims to represent more diversity than the narrow demographic the music industry all too often seems aimed at. The conference program has been curated to offer a platform for lively debate and fresh ideas that will equip and challenge both men and women. In addition to examining the business side of careers in music, Sound Industry will be looking at the profession from a human perspective, covering broader issues of musical diversity, equality, well-being and politics.
As well as workshops and talks, the day will also include live performances at lunchtime and an evening concert with Kate Simko and the London Electronic Orchestra. As well as those already working in music professionally, Sound Industry welcomes students and individuals aspiring to a career in the music industry.
Sound Industry takes place on 30th March 2017 at Colston Hall, Bristol. Tickets are £15 for students and £20 for a standard ticket.
