Working the Network Event
Almost every country has its own networking event and showcase festival, some small, some big. To get the most out of your showcase gig, choose wisely which festival you want to play. To help you make a choice we’ve compared different showcase festivals for you, from very small to VERY big. Including contributions by SXSW, NXNE, MIDEM, Europavox and more!
