While this week’s main story indicates more doom and gloom ahead for the record business, live music’s likely lads continue to make out like bandits.

Many of those who earn their corn from performing or selling music will therefore be interested in what’s up for discussion at the Live Music Business Summit to be held in Belfast’s Spring & Airbrake next Wednesday.

A bunch of seasoned music business observers, including Feargal Sharkey (the ex-Undertone who is now chairman of the UK’s Live Music Forum), Glasgowbury festival promoter Paddy Glasgow, Alan Simms who runs clubs Shine and Stiff Kitten and record-label boss James Cassidy, will be discussing the current lie of the land.

There will also be live performances from local acts In Case Of Fire, General Fiasco, Defcon and Cashier No 9.

Admission to the event is free and further information can be obtained from the Northern Irish Music Commission or on 048-90923488
