Talk. Connect. Do Music. Durban, Thursday 26 July
A year ago Bandustry NPC kicked off their very first talk in Johannesburg to a small crowd of musicians, industry professionals and music lovers. Today #Bandustry is a monthly must have networking, education, and interactive evening- coming to Durban for the first time.
Bandustry is not just another talk about music, it’s every single person involved in the music indus¬try – from musicians, to the suits, to the fans. It’s a music initiative focused on giving South African musicians the tools needed to build their business/ brand and the industry holistically. Bandustry is an informal meeting place for anyone in the music industry to network, learn and grow.
Each month, industry professionals and musicians openly discuss the news and challenges in the music business of today. The experts share their knowledge and all the tools necessary to help musicians build a brand and inspire growth in the live scene – it aims to provide perspective on what is going on and what is in store for the future.
The event is free and open to everybody who wants to get involved in the industry and to connect with key figures in music.
Kicking off in Durban, attendees will be joined by some of Durban scene’s cultural curators, musicians and entrepreneurs. Bandustry is excited to host Andy Davis (Zafiko / ZigZag), Gabriella Peppas (Ilifindo/ Zafiko), ByLwansta, and Sphephelo Mbhele (KZN Music Imbizo) on their first Durban panel.
Durban’s own electro-pop band, Easy Freak, will be setting the mood beforehand and the session will be streamed live to Gauteng.
