On 19th July 2014, the inaugural Electronic Music Summit Wales (EMSW) takes place at Clwb Ifor Bach, Cardiff. Aimed at those involved in electronic music right across the board, from Dubstep and D&B, to Hip Hop, Techno and House, the Summit will pack in panels, special guests, advice and networking.
Organised by Welsh Music Foundation (WMF) with support from Arts Council of Wales, Electronic Music Summit Wales will also provide a dedicated forum and discussion for individuals working in electronic music to share any issues, talk about what’s working and discuss ideas for making the scene even stronger.
Kieron Jones, Industry Development Manager at Welsh Music Foundation said: "In our recent work at WMF, and on the back of the live music survey/ strategy for Cardiff that we’ve been carrying out, WMF has been hearing from people across the board involved in electronic music in Wales. Hearing their issues as artists in getting their music heard, as promoters facing barriers when putting on nights, for example. It goes without saying that there’s the talent here, and this is an opportunity to get all involved in electronic music of all types in the same room to shout about issues, tell us their problems, what’s working and to discuss ideas for action.”
The outcomes of the Summit will influence the work that WMF does, including the aim to grow the Summit into a larger, annual event. WMF wants to work with those involved in each of the sub-genres to help make Wales a stronghold for great electronic music.
Delegate passes are £10 or £14 including networking lunch at Urban Tap House. Further details, schedule and more are now via the link below. Guest panellists will be announced over the coming weeks.
