Music industry event Resonate was held in Glasgow earlier this month.

The event featured 26 panels, 14 hours of music learning and collaboration, six bands and attracted hundreds of delegates.

The 2019 event centred around an ethos of bringing industry training, business development and innovation to the city. Resonate covered a range of topics including mental health, funding, route to festival stages, tech workshops, creativity, music in Europe, agents, media and touring.

Director of 23rd Precinct Music, Billy Kiltie, said: “Our key pillars are collaboration, creativity, accessibility and development – four crucial steps to help you in your current or future music careers. This year’s Resonate was the best one yet, we were thrilled to bring together so many amazing music industry delegates and companies in the brilliant city of Glasgow.”

The event also featured panel discussions with industry professionals. Panellists arrived from all over the world, including Thailand, as Keynote Speaker Simon Napier-Bell made his Resonate debut. Napier-Bell shared his career highlights including his time managing Wham! And T. Rex.

2019 also saw Resonate pledged to PRS Foundation’s Keychange Programme which aims to achieve a 50:50 gender balance across festivals and conference programmes by 2020. To reinforce this, the event was joined by femaleartists, managers and creatives, as well as having the conference opened by Glasgow Life’s Katie Duffy, Senior Projects and Programme Manager for Arts and Music alongside returning Compere Janice Forsyth.

Resonate 2019 aimed to create a safe space to collaborate and learn through panel discussions, workshops, Q+As, drop-in sessions and demonstrations.

The event closed with Resonate Live, which saw six Scottish bands take to the stage including Glasgow band Rascalton and female singer-songwriter Scarlett Randle.
