Born To Be Wide, celebrates its 10th birthday at Edinburgh’s Electric Circus on 6 February with a special party looking back on the past decade.
Previous DJs will be invited to play their favourite three Scottish releases since 2004, and leading industry commentator David Balfour [Record Of The Day] and promoter Dave Corbet [T In The Park/DF Concerts] will reflect on developments in the business.
BBC Radio Scotland’s Vic Galloway will also interview Born To Be Wide’s founders about how a social night for the Edinburgh music scene, has evolved into an organization which now hosts dozens of seminars, as well as Scotland’s only music convention, Wide Days.
“We are looking forward to celebrating with the many people who have taken part in our Born To Be Wide events,” says Olaf Furniss, who founded the night with A&R scout Brodie Smithers. “We have had some amazing DJs, speakers and regulars over the past ten years.”
The birthday party marks the beginning of a busy year for Born To Be Wide, which now operates as a not for profit Community Interest Company. On February 8 it hosts the latest of its Off The Record youth events in Kirkcaldy’s Adam Smith Theatre, which will be followed by a seminar night on March 6 and the Wide Days convention on April 9-10.
