Northern Ireland artists and companies are increasingly working internationally in a range of global territories. Showcasing events and international trade fairs such as SXSW and MIDEM are key gateways to working internationally and working with the international industry.
This event will be useful for any artist or band interested in showcasing at SXSW and MIDEM. It would also be valuable for: those looking towards other UK or international events; managers or management companies working with artists; labels; agents and the media.
Both MIDEM & SXSW include strong interactive and digital elements so the event will also be relevant for artists and companies working in these areas.
