Click here to go to goNORTH 2012 websiteWe are delighted to confirm that goNORTH 2012 will take place on the 6th and 7th of June next year. The twelfth edition of Scotland’s premier Creative Industries festival will again be held across several venues in Inverness City Centre.

goNORTH 2011 proved the most successful edition to date, and boasted the broadest range of creative industry activity in the event’s eleven year history. For 2011, goNORTH also introduced the goNORTH Festival Tour, an exciting development which saw organisers deliver some fantastic showcasing opportunities for emerging bands and film makers at five of the finest independent festivals in the country.

“We are delighted with the success of goNORTH 2011 and our inaugural Festival Tour, said goNORTH Director for Screen and Broadcast, Amanda Millen.”The response to last year’s event was fantastic, with a significant increase in attendance across all elements. We are really looking forward to delivering another great programme in 2012, and are working hard to ensure goNORTH remains one of the top creative industry events on the calendar.”

“Last year’s event was outstanding, and generated some excellent opportunities for emerging artists and music businesses”, added Director for Music Shaun Arnold. “We are looking forward to bringing another top class programme of industry panels, workshops and live showcases to the north of Scotland, and are really excited about starting our 2012 campaign.”

As always, all panels, worshops and live showcases will be free and open to the public, with industry and media requested to register.

About MUSIC NEWS Scotland

MUSIC NEWS Scotland was born 12 years ago when dial up broadband was still around and desktop pc’s ruled. So we did what had been done since 220 AD in China and every month put ink on a printing plate, ran some paper over it and hey presto MNS was published (okay it was a wee bit more involved than that, but the basic principle was the same!) Move on to 2011 with high speed broadband and access to the www everywhere and the future was catching up with us rapidly. The volume of information flowing into MNS HQ was more than our monthly issue could cope with, and more and more Scottish music stories of great value were being spiked (an old press term not a dodgy drink). Reaching our vast number of readers in every conceivable nook and cranny of Scotland has always been a challenge monthly but to do that more often was physically not feasible. So we have doffed oor tam o’ shanter to the future and MNS is now a weekly digital publication, and not only weekly now but twice the number of pages than our old printed friend! Along with our weekly GIGguide and FESTIVALS! supplement we are now producing 72 pages of Scottish music news (and only music news) each and EVERY week:) We remain as true as ever to our launch roots of 8 years ago though - MUSIC NEWS Scotland supports all Scottish bands and performers no matter what style of music you’re involved in. Our aim is to circulate music industry news and to help to raise the profile of musicians and improve communications between genres. To help achieve this copies of MUSIC NEWS Scotland are emailed to key industry contacts throughout the UK. Thank you for your support over the last 8 years and please raise a glass to our digital future with you all. Thanks for your support, The MNS team!
