Sónar+D Conference at Sónar Cape Town
Sónar+D Conference is the day time component of Sónar Cape Town because, you know an electronic music festival would be a little incomplete without a panel of discussions by some of the industry’s leaders.
Especially, an affiliate event like Sónar Cape Town, where the display of music is more than just a rad drunk party, but also an opportunity for music lovers and artists to gain a creative injection of music industry perspective.
A lot gets said at these panel discussions, and even though many of the ideas expressed don’t always see the light, the magic is in the discussion itself where ideas get spread, thoughts become influenced and the local music industry grows by the sharing of ideas.
Sónar+D Conference is curated by Breathe African Music Conference Cape Town. It will be celebrating the integration of music, business and technology, and showcasing new and future industry trends. The discussions will all take place on the 16th of December. Check out the day’s full schedule for the Sónar+D Conference is below.
