Bristol Based: The Music Business in our City

Industry Inside-Out

A panel discussion featuring:

  • THISISDA (Artist)
  • Lizzy Bowman (Red Light Management)
  • Jakes (Artist)
  • Koast (Durkle Disco / SWU FM)

Are you already, or interested in, working in music and wondering ‘Why Bristol?’ 

Maybe you’re an MC or singer-songwriter asking if you can really breakthrough from here? Perhaps you’re a DJ or producer and conscious of the success stories from south-west movements past and present? Or you could be into the many other music industry roles such as management, promotion and PR, or you could even be considering being your own label, event or agency boss?

As part of Bristol Takeover, Multi-Track – the into-industry portal for underground music – will lead a discussion on working within the music business from a local’s point of view. Hear from a select set of speakers, working in-front of and behind the scenes who all have successful careers and are based in the city.  Gain valuable insight into the practicalities of building and maintaining a living through music outside of the capital.

Join us in The Lantern as we explore this topic, and put your questions to our expert panel of Bristol-based industry insiders.

This event is part of Bristol Takeover, to attend please purchase a ticket here.
