Wednesday, 4th March, 2020 4:37pm

Musicians and industry figures will converge on Leeside next month when Music Cork returns for its fourth outing.

The three-day symposium will feature a programme of prominent Irish and international speakers, as well as a series of live music events taking place in venues around Cork city.

This year’s keynote speech is to be delivered by one of the world’s most recognised booking agents, Steve Strange of X-ray Touring. Strange will discuss his experiences in the ever-expanding world of international touring where he worked with the likes of Coldplay, Eminem, Queens of the Stone Age, Kodaline and more.

Joining him at the event will be Geir Luedy (Made Management), Pixie Pickering (Sony ATV), Mark Crossingham (MD Universal Ireland), Olly Ward (UTA London), Jodie Delaney (MCD), Edison Waters (Collective Management) and Niall Breslin (Where Is My Mind Podcast).

Organiser Willie Ryan said: “This event has proven invaluable in terms of making connections and listening to some wonderful insights from some of the best names in the business over the last few years. We feel we have again produced a fantastic programme over the three days and look forward to seeing everyone back in Cork this April.”

Music Cork 2020 takes place from 22-24 April at The Metropole Hotel and across various venues in the city.

Delegate tickets for Music Cork cost €85 and include access to all of the panels, showcase gigs and lunch at The Metropole Hotel on Thursday 23 April. Discounted student delegate passes cost €35 and allow similar access.

“We’d encourage students hoping to pursue careers in the music industry to come along and hear what our speakers have to say. It’s a great opportunity to learn from some of the best right on our doorstep,” concluded Ryan.
