Output Belfast is moving its ground-breaking music conference online this year and will also be delivering a unique offering of video conversations in February of next year.
For the past six years Output Belfast has grown to be the largest music conference and showcasing event in Ireland.
Each year 800 participants arrive in Cathedral Quarter to learn and share information from key figures in the music business, from managers and artists, through to PR companies and successful artists.
Like many events the Covid-19 pandemic forced Output Belfast to reconsider its offering.
By November 6th those who have applied to take part in three series of Mentoring Conversations will have been informed. Applications to take part were over-subscribed, but it will still have a range of artists, songwriters, labels, managers, publishers, journalists, DJs, PR companies, promoters, lawyers and others taking part.
Originally planned for February 2021 the next Output Belfast will feature a unique ’50 Conversations About Music’ drawn from the mentoring conversations and the online daytime conference on February 13 including Zoom Q&A sessions.
Further details will be unveiled as the final schedule comes together, but if you think it will all be a bit out of your musical comfort zone, the experts and participants will come from across all genres including rock, jazz, indie, pop, classical, metal, trad, electronic and avant-garde.
Given the breadth covered about the music industry in previous years it will be essential viewing.
The first of the Mentoring Conversations takes place on Monday, November 16.
