WOMEX To Steal Nordic Scene


COPENHAGEN, Denmark (VIP NEWS) — Following on from the success last year, the WOMEX Trade Fair will be housing a Nordic area again in 2010. Denmark, Sweden, Norway and Finland have already confirmed their participation at the spacious Nordic umbrella stand.

WOMEX takes place in Copenhagen on October 27-30.

Bodil Høgh, organizer of the Nordic exhibition at WOMEX and international project coordinator at the Danish Arts Agency – Music
Centre, affirms: "To have WOMEX here in Copenhagen is a great chance for both Danish artists and music professionals. We can introduce our local music to the world, be inspired by a wealth of showcasing artists from the most diverse backgrounds and meet labels, publishers, promoters, agents and the like from 90 countries in our
capital city."

And to complement this will be the special Nordic nights on Thursday, Friday and Saturday inviting the delegates to discover the music of WOMEX's current home region. The Nordic Club will be featuring local
pearls from Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Finland and Iceland.
