Sørveiv Music Summit returns in 2018 to present ground-breaking conversations around artist health, the value of music, streaming and digitalisation, and the environment.

Discounted delegate passes are available until October 17th – get yours here…

First up on the agenda at the 2018 edition of Sørveiv is the value of music, analysing how digitalisation – as well as social and political issues – impact upon our perception of music and its place in the world, looking past our European/North American bubble to learn from those who truly have to fight to protect and elevate art. Beyond its economic value, how important is it to nurture and maintain a music scene, and what can be achieved through doing so?  

Joining us to discuss the subject will be Cecilia Soojeong Yi (Zandari Festa and DMZ Peace Train Music Festival, South Korea) Anthony Semaan (Beirut Jam Sessions, Lebanon) and Shekayla Maragh (B Side Hip Hop festival – UK), as well as more esteemed speakers from Norway, the UK, the US and beyond.

We also need to talk about our relationship to the environment, about the hidden energy costs of online consumption. Music Tank and the University of Westminster tackled this in 2012, presenting some disturbing data. This was six years ago, and since then more consumption than ever has moved online. Should we care? And while we’re on the subject of caring; it’s time we addressed the wider impact of our industry on our environment and the climate. What steps are we taking to encourage our artists, audiences, our industry-at-large – and indeed ourselves – to consider the role we’re playing in shaping our collective future?

We’re excited to reveal that Chiara Badiali (Julie’s Bicycle, UK), Linnéa Svensson (NO) and Dr. Guy Morrow (University of Melbourne, Australia), among others, will all be on hand to share their thoughts and input on this vital matter.
