Wide Days

CMU is heading to the Wide Days music conference and showcase festival in Edinburgh this week, taking part in a number of sessions on Friday.

The whole thing kicks off at midday tomorrow (19 May) at Edinburgh’s Assembly Rooms with a stack of panels, round tables and speedy ’15 Minutes Of Knowledge’ presentations across Thursday and Friday, plus a walking music tour, record shop tour and whisky tasting on Saturday.

Meanwhile, in the evenings it’s obviously all about the music, with the Revive Live Welcome Party with the Music Venue Trust tomorrow evening, the Wide Days Talent Development Programme showcases on Friday, and the BreakOut West x Focus Wales takeover on Saturday.

CMU’s Chris Cooke will be taking part in three conference sessions on Friday.

He’ll join a conversation all about NFTs in music at 10.15am; will deliver a speedy overview of the MMF Song Royalties Manifesto that was launched at The Great Escape last week at 1.30pm; and he’ll host a live recording of the Setlist podcast at 2.45pm, with three industry guests talking about some of the biggest music business news stories of the last week.
