The core and edge of Nordic folk- & world music artists will enter the stage in the first ever edition of Nordic Showcase. Västerås, Sweden in March 30-31 2016. In the audience will be international buyers, festivals, venues and all key actors in the Nordic music life. This will turn Västerås into a two day melting pot of visions ideas and of most of all fantastic music!
Nordic Showcase is a new two-day showcase concept in connection to the Swedish Folk & World Music Gala. The gala concert with the award ceremonies has for years been the annual highlight of the Swedish folk and world music scene and is the undisputed national meeting point with concerts, workshops, seminars and exhibitions with and for musicians, dancers, educators, producers, organisers and funding providers.
The showcases will spotlight on young and upcoming folk and world music groups and are open for both delegates and audience and will run through afternoon & evenings. The programme consists of artists/groups from each Nordic country and 5-7 artists/groups from Sweden, selected by a reference group with national and Nordic culture & industry reps.
