About this Event
Showcase events are back in force around the world, with even more than before the pandemic. Our panel explores what they offer, how artists can increase their chance of getting booked and how they and industry professionals can get the most of out of taking part.
Amelia Stokes from the band Midnight Ambulance will join representatives from Pitch, Showcase Scotland and Wide Days who will outline their respective selection criteria, as well as providing insights into international conventions including ESNS, Reeperbahn Festival, SXSW and WOMEX. The panel will be followed by self-indulgent DJ sets (guests TBC) and an opportunity to socialise with the speakers and other attendees.
19:00 (GMT) – Doors Open
19:30 - 20:30 Panel

Tickets £6 (proceeds donated to Attitude Is Everything and British Association of Performing Arts Medicine)

The venue is at street level so can be accessed by wheelchair, but please let us know in advance so that we can set aside a decent spot in the venue ([email protected]). We will also live-stream the panel for those unable to attend in person.
