With Bergen’s history of fostering international music stars and thriving music scene, it’s no wonder Vill Vill Vest conference and showcase festival packs an impressive lineup of artists and speakers.
Vill Vill Vest runs from September 28. – 30.
In the festival’s second ever edition over 50 artists will play the city’s most established venues at night while the days are spent at seminars and panels where key Norwegian and international industry professionals will discuss everything from marketing strategies and branding, contracts, and music supervision.
50% of panels and seminars will be in English.
Among the confirmed speakers are Rich Schaefer, Tom Windish, Geir Luedy, Samuel Diaz, Robert Chalice, Vegard Waske, Francisca Goncalves and Lauren Down.
This year the festival will have a particular focus on the club-culture and scene, with interesting key-note speakers, panels and talks, and also a broad club-program in the nighttime in addition to the showcase line-up.
