Kirklees Year of Music - PLATFORM Artist Exchange Showcase


Lo-fi R&B artist Isaac Malibu

Working with Music Cities Events, Kirklees Year of Music hosted Platform  - a music industry event giving Kirklees artists a career-changing opportunity. Artists, selected from an open call, took part in a live performance on 27 April, part of a two-day programme of live music and industry panel seminars that took place at Huddersfield’s Lawrence Batley Theatre.

We loved being at the showcase watching the amazing live music sets performed by the local talented artists and bands, and attending the insightful music industry seminar of experienced panellists sharing their industry experience with a captive audience. 

We were there to capture content for social media, oversee documentation and welcome BBC Look North TV to cover the event.
