Route x Wild Paths Festival Conferences

We are thrilled to be able to finally announce we have curated a selection of conferences in collaboration with Wild Paths Festival, due to take place in Norwich this October.  The two days of panels and talks feature music industry professionals, artists and special guests.

Throughout the curation process we have tried to touch upon the issues that affect marginialised groups and their accces to music industry employment both on stage and behind the scenes. Topics include a look at steps forward the industry is making with anti-racisim, well over a year since Blackout Tuesday. The ongoing failure of festivals to produce 50:50 line ups and how your postcode affects your chances of building a career. We also examine the viability of streaming as a new sector and sit back for a keynote interview with none other than Gilles Peterson. 

We are delighted to have panelists and hosts from the likes of  Youth Music, PRS, shesaidso, Keychange, Women In Ctrl, DICE, UK Music and more. See the full panel line ups below. 

All talks are FREE to Access Creative College, NUA and City College students or anyone with a festival ticket.
