Music Yorkshire: SXSW and MIDEM International Showcase Briefing

[wide]2011 briefing | Music Yorkshire: SXSW and MIDEM International Showcase Briefing[/wide]Music Yorkshire have been championing and supporting artists from all over the region for the last five years. They have promoted Yorkshire Music worldwide as well as hosting local showcases including CD releases, festivals, events, campaigns as well as conferences. With the main aim being to draw attention from mass national and international media to the county there are no bounds that the guys at Music Yorkshire haven’t gone to in order to endorse the talent that surrounds us.

The beginning of September will see a briefing in order to advise bands, artists and management on how to get involved with international showcases such as SXSW (USA) and MIDEM (France) in 2012. There will be a range of guest speakers from different backgrounds as well as talks on events at international showcases and support available. These talks will be followed by networking events so people can find out a little bit more about what goes on.

It’s a must opportunity to follow in the footsteps of bands such as the Kaiser Chiefs, Pulled Apart By Horses, Alvarez Kings amongst others in plying their trade across the world.

There’s huge interest in Yorkshire music as a whole at the moment it’s a must for any band or artist simply wanting to know a little bit more.

The event is free and held on Thursday 1st September, at the HIFI Club, Leeds.
