Creative Scotland – in partnership with SxSW, MIDEM and UKTI and the Cultural Enterprise Office – are hosting a free information session for artists, bands, managers, agents, record labels interested in showcasing at SXSW or MIDEM.

The session, at 7pm at Glasgow’s ABC2 on 31 August, will cover the basics – cost and funding, visas, PR, and indeed whether the event is right for you at this time.

Scottish artists and managers (TBA) who have showcased in the past will talk about their experiences and SXSW and MIDEM reps will be on hand. It’s a free event but booking is essential – email [email protected] or call 0844 544 999.
