“An unmissable fixture in our calendar” Record Of The Day
Since its launch in 2010, Wide Days has established itself as a music industry event with a difference. Hosted in the world’s oldest purpose-built student union, next door to the University of Edinburgh’s antique instrument collection, it is a far cry from the ubiquitous hotel function suites and sterile conference centres.
Panels, presentations and keynotes are conducted in a Victorian debating hall, while a rooftop terrace and numerous bars are ideal for meetings or socialising with other delegates. Discussion topics focus on the rapid evolution of the music business, as befits an event hosted opposite Charles Darwin’s student residence.
A maximum of eight acts are invited to showcase at Wide Days, and all shows are open to members of the public, who can apply for free tickets online.
