goNORTH was launched in 2001 to provide a platform for artistes from the north of Scotland to showcase for music industry and media representatives on their own patch. Originally hosted across Aberdeen’s Belmont Street, it briefly relocated to Dundee, before settling in Scotland’s most northerly city, Inverness. Now covering a much wider remit including Screen & Broadcast, Designer Fashion and Publishing, the event has become firmly established as Scotland’s leading Creative Industries Festival.

The goNORTH Festival Tour was introduced in 2011 as an exciting addition which takes goNORTH back to its roots and supports new music and film across some of the finest independent festivals in the country. Their partner festivals for 2014 are Belladrum Tartan Heart Festival, Wickerman Festival and Loopallu.

Mamie Coleman, VP Music, FOX: “goNORTH acts as a gateway into the UK market and is a great way for us to access new international artists”.

John Robb: “goNORTH is great on many levels, great line up of bands that goes beyond the usual dustbin indie fare, a beautiful city to hang out in and a surprisingly diverse cross section of people attending making it one of the best of the music conference circuit”.

Sat Bisla, President & Founder, A&R Worldwide: “goNORTH has proven to be Scotland’s premier music showcase and conference event. It continually evolves and brings a great balance of creativity and commercial outcomes. I always find the event productive and a valuable experience”.

Keith Harris, Director for Performer Affairs, PPL: “goNORTH is a much more open seminar. A lot of conferences are expensive, which makes them exclusive. goNORTH makes it easy for the people who really need the information to get it”.

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!
