With a focus on the capital, the event will explore ideas about how to build and nurture artistic and business talent, and will draw on recent reports by the Music Venue Trust and the University of Edinburgh. It begins with an interview with Unique Events founder Pete Irvine, who will also join the panel discussion with Adam Behr (Live Music Exchange), Ali Bowden (Edinburgh UNESCO City of Literature Trust) and Stina Tweeddale (Honeyblood).
Following the discussions, speakers will be invited to DJ and socialise with the audience.
Admission is £5.50, £4 for Musicians' Union members, and can be purchased here.
