Output Belfast Announces Closing Keynote Speaker.

Bob Lefsetz, the world-renowned music industry commentator, has today been announced as the closing keynote speaker at Belfast’s Output Music conference, the largest one-day music conference in Ireland, due to take place in the Metropolitan Arts Centre (MAC) on Thursday 16 February.

Author of the must-read ‘Lefsetz Letter’, Bob is famous for being beholden to no one and speaking the truth, addressing the issues that are at the core of the music business: downloading, copy protection, pricing and the music itself.

His intense brilliance engages readers from the most on-trend new bands and producers to Steven Tyler, Quincy Jones and everybody who’s in the music business. Never boring, always entertaining, Bob’s insights are fuelled by his stint as an entertainment business attorney, major domo of Sanctuary Music’s American division and consultancies to major labels.

Joining Bob to speak at Output will be London’s Night Czar, Amy Lamé, long term PJ Harvey producer Rob Ellis, Adam Ficek from Babyshambles, Major Lazer graphic designer Ferry Gouw and a huge host of music industry names who will share opinion, expertise and offer advice to Northern Ireland’s thriving music industry and artist community.

Output is free to attend but requires sign-up. Please visit Outputbelfast.com to sign up to the day’s events.
