The Scottish Music Industry Association has organised a briefing session for musicians considering appearing at (or applying for, anyway) SXSW, MIDEM, or any similar networking conference.

The session promises to explore what is involved in successfully showcasing at such events via festival staff, artists and managers who have attended in the past, and offers details on how to apply, obtain funding, and on whether it is a good idea to go at all.

The event takes place at The Arches in Glasgow on Tuesday evening, from 7.30pm. More info.
