Returning to Preston on 24 November Soundbytes in conjunction with Un-Convention. This will beĀ one day of talks and panels around independent music and creativity.


Soundbytes Un-Convention Preston 2012 is looking at building on the eventĀ in 2011 where 200 local artists, promoters, labels, entrepreneurs and industry professionals gathered to discuss careers in music and how to get ahead in the live sector.Ā There was plenty of advice ad ideas aboutĀ development of the local scene.

‘This year the event will again focus on opportunities for artists and independent music companies in the modern music landscape. The event aims to connect young and emerging practitioners with each other; to provide them with practical and achievable strategies; and to encourage them to work together to create and support cultural activities in the region’.
