2pm Thursday 11 June, Youtube Live @ shorturl.at/cwFMT
Thursday 11 June will see people from the music industry and academics from around the world, come together online to explore the question ‘What is the Future of Live Music?’. Clearly a hugely topical subject, particularly since the abrupt halt on public gatherings last March due to Covid-19.
The online event will start at 2pm on Youtube live, and include seminal musicians Peter Hook of Joy Division and New Order fame and 808 State co-founder Graham Massey, Liam Ogburn from the hotly tipped band ‘Working Mens Club’, leading venue and festival operator Aaron Mellor, Teresa Moore from a Greener Festival to be chaired by Tony Rigg.
The occasion marks the launch of a new book called ‘The Future of Live Music’ published by Bloomsbury, co-edited by UCLan’s Tony Rigg, Ewa Mazierska and Les Gillon. The book explores many of the dimensions of live music and features an international cast of contributions who will be discussing their chapters at the event.
