A brand new event is coming to Liverpool in July that will look at the legacy of Eurovision 2023.
Following the record-breaking success of Eurovision 2023 by host city Liverpool on behalf of Ukraine, the buzz and enthusiasm ripples on, so on 14 July the ‘Modern Music Cities: A Eurovision Legacy Conference’ will be taking place at Spaces at the Spine.
This new conference will bring together local, national and international thought-leaders, alongside music creatives, policy makers and shakers, and industry and cultural leaders to discuss the power and purpose of music cities.
Speakers at the conference include Seth Godin (Award-winning author and thought-leader), Shain Shapiro (Sound Diplomacy), Carolyn Cooper (Jamaican author, essayist and literary scholar), Nelson George (American music and culture critic, journalist and filmmaker), Ammo Talwar (UK Music Diversity Task Force Group Chair), Sandra Wall (Trade and Industry Developer for the Creative Sector in Norrköping Kommun), Ben Homewood (Features Editor at Music Week), Bryan Johnson (Head of Artist & Industry Partnerships, International at Spotify), Kevin McManus (Head of Unesco City of Music- Liverpool), Dr Matt Brennan (Reader in Popular Music, Glasgow University), Nur Ozdamar (Lead, Artist & Label Development EMEA, YouTube & Google) and many more.
This seminal event will ask what contemporary music cities look like presently and need to look like in the future in this ever-evolving industry. The conference takes place in Liverpool on Friday 14 July at the iconic Spaces At The Spine, hosted by BBC Radio’s Dave Monks.
Modern Music Cities is being made possible through generous funding from the Department for Culture, Media and Sport and Liverpool City Council, with support from the Liverpool City Region Music Board.
