As part of Evolution Emerging 2017, artists performing at the festival will be taking advantage of the great opportunities that accompany their place on the line up, to gain essential insight, thought-provoking debate and practical advice from music industry professionals to develop strategies that can assist in building regional and national audiences and industry awareness.

Claire Southwick of Primitive Management will be a special guest at the Artist Masterclass Day on Saturday 8th April, alongside representatives from Kartel Music Group, PRS For Music, Brace Yourself PR, The Musicians’ Union and Vevo.

Claire will be hosting one of the 6 Interactive Roundtables and leading informal and educational discussions into artist management.

Generator’s Talent Development Events Coordinator, Ged Robinson says: “Generator are really pleased to continue this additional support for Evolution Emerging artists, alongside the showcase opportunity they can develop their knowledge of the music business and learn about publishing, working with records labels, the live industry, artist management, attracting press and radio as well as how to plan their releases. This professional development alongside existing creative talent is crucial to build industry awareness and audiences.“
