Scottish music convention Wide Days has announced some details about its 2019 programme, a tenth edition that will see additional and new strands added to the proceedings.

Innovations include a new event on the Saturday aimed at artists and extra live music showcases in which three Scottish festivals will each curate a venue. The core conference will take place on the Friday, which will again include some practical workshops presented by CMU:DIY. There will also be a spotlight on music publishing and a session in which music journalists and music PRs will be invited to, well, ‘constructively criticise’ each other.

Confirming the innovations and expanded programme, Wide Days founder Olaf Furniss says: “Over the past two years there has been a huge rise in interest in Wide Days from the international music community and our colleagues in the rest of the UK. The expanded programme is a great way to highlight what is happening in Scotland, while at the same time developing opportunities internationally for our artists, festivals and music businesses”.

Wide Days 2019 takes place from 11-13 Apr in Edinburgh. Early bird tickets are now on sale at
