The Inaugural Breathe Sunshine African Music Conference

No Comments

The African music industry is one of the fastest growing music industries in the world, but the continent still lacks the skills and network of our international counterparts. The Breathe Sunshine African Music Conference aims to address these challenges and put Cape Town on the map as a global music hub for African music.

The inaugural conference takes place on Monday 1 April and Tuesday 2 April 2013 at the iconic and centrally located Cape Town City Hall, and aims to encourage networking and the sharing of information between all involved in the African music community.

The event is expected to attract a diverse audience from the local community, national visitors and other African countries as well as European and American delegates who are working with African music in their respective territories.

The conference includes Workshops, Panel Discussions, Presentations and Exhibition Stands, a networking lounge and a concert showcasing African talent.

“Our aim is to make the conference inclusive by including representatives from all genres of music and cultural backgrounds,” said Trenton Birch – Founder of Black Mango Music and Breathe Sunshine Music Conference Director.

The conference works on multiple levels with content to appeal to all ensuring each attendee can maximize their experience with artist empowerment workshops for people new to the industry, and an executive networking lounge for music business people to have high level conversations.

The conference takes place during the same week as the internationally renowned Cape Town International Jazz Festival and is therefore the perfect opportunity to engage and experience a week of the African entertainment industry through these two world-class events.

There is an exciting list of keynote speakers, panellists and workshop leaders from all over the world. See for all conference details.
