OneFest and musician Frank Turner will be the hosts of Lost Evenings, a four-day event filled with industry panels, workshops and performances at London’s Roundhouse taking place 12-15 May.
The non-profitable UK music industry development company, OneFest, has partnered with musician Frank Turner and the Arts Council England to provide a platform for emerging new talent to collaborate with music industry professionals.
The Lost Evenings performance line-up is set to feature special guests from Frightened Rabbit, Beans On Toast, AJJ and New Pagans.
“As an artist who worked their way up from the ground floor, I totally understand the challenges involved in carving out a meaningful and sustainable career within the music industry,” said Frank Turner.
“OneFest plays a critical role in helping young talent get their first significant break, along with arming them with the tools and the knowledge to get ahead. I’m delighted to be collaborating with OneFest as I recognise only too well the importance of opportunity and the right kind of support to help new and young talent into the business.”
Daytime panels will focus on topics such as ‘The Business’, ‘Women & The Industry’, ‘Getting Gigs’, ‘Mental Health, Erasing the Stigma’, ‘Digital Generation’, ‘How to Access Funding’ and a keynote speech from Radio 1’s Gemma Cairney.
OneFest co-founder Sandra Bhatia commented: “OneFest, together with the music festival community and like-minded organisations, work with ambitious and talented young people. We support them to develop their skills, provide a promotional platform for their talent and connect them into networks that will help them make the most of the opportunities that will come their way as they continue their careers within music.”
