Fielding Hope is a live music and arts programmer and promoter based in Glasgow, Scotland. He has been organising events in Glasgow since February 2005. Alongside being the creative director of Cry Parrot - his central programming and promotion project - Fielding has assisted the creative programming of Counterflows Festival and Glasgow Festival of DIY Culture 2009, as well as collaborated with the likes of Glasgow Film Festival, Cafe Oto (London), Suoni Per Il Popolo Festival (Montreal), GI Festival and MADE Festival (Sweden). He has also co-founded Music Language Festival - a two day Glasgow-based multi-venue festival celebrating the creativity and diversity of the Scottish underground music scene.
Fielding's main interest is to promote music that can be considered critical, left-field, avante-garde and thought-provoking. He has promoted shows for a diverse selection of local and international independent acts. While his central focus is promoting music events, he has also produced both cross-over and experimental events involving film, visuals and visual art installations.
Fielding currently works as the Music Programme Manager for independent live music venue Nice N Sleazy. He also works as a DJ in various venues in Glasgow.
