LONDON (CelebrityAccess) — The International Live Music Conference (ILMC) has announced the launch of a new ILMC-like event aimed at the festival world.
The International Festival Forum (IFF) will be an invitation-only event aimed at festivals and agents, taking place in London from 30 September – 1 October, 2015. The forum will feature exclusive showcases and Q&As with some of the industry top booking agencies.
IFF takes place across two venues: Proud Camden and historic music venue Dingwalls next door. The morning element will feature unique panels and workshops, while the afternoon and evening is dedicated to agency Q&As and showcases.
Founding association partners on the event are the Association of Independent Festivals (AIF), De Concert!, the International Jazz Festivals Organization and International Festivals and Events Association (IFEA) Europe. Founding agency partners include The Agency Group, Coda, Primary Talent International and X-ray Touring.
“The philosophy behind IFF is two fold,” says ILMC’s Greg Parmley. “First, to build a unique forum where leaders and innovators in the festival world can meet and exchange ideas; and second, to provide a platform for festivals and agencies with targeted networking, Q&As and by showcasing the best festival-ready, agency-signed artists.” – Staff Writers
