HEMI Enters BUSH, the Hungarian Showcase Conference
Budapest Showcase Hub is the first Hungarian showcase festival and conference, focusing on the Central Eastern European region, showcasing the best current artists and listing all the hot topics of the music industry. This year, irregularly, it’ll be a one-day-only hybrid event, on November 4th, but will still be international and reaching beyond the borders.
The organisers of BUSH have created an entertaining video series of 31 promising artists of the region, as traveling and gathering is highly limited due to the pandemic, so they cannot perform live as usual.
The trailer of the series is already available, while the full episodes will be launched at the start of the conference, on the 4th of November on BUSH’s YouTube channel, which will including some interesting trivia of the artists.
In the selection process the organisers, just as usual, asked for the support of a few hundred music professionals and associations, such as ETEP and INES.
The conference and mini-showcase will be held at the famous A38 Ship in Budapest. The conference program is focusing on this hectic year of COVID-19, on changes and challenges.
The first two panels will be powered by Hub for the Exchange of Music Innovation (HEMI), Co-funded by the Creative Europe programme of the European Union.
The first one, Young Indie Label Associations in Deep Water, will dig into what happened in the past couple of years to the young label associations of the region.
Then, Entrepreneurship in Music Business, aims to clear the picture around the self-releasing artists, music business education and programmes like HEMI Music Hub, Music Competence Centre or JUMP.
Further panels will be discussing the sector’s challenges and opportunities, and of course, a listening session is also a must!
After the conference, four very promising Hungarian acts will hit the stage: IamSoyuz, Saya Noé, Mongooz and the Magnet and Törzs while, at the small stage, there will be an electronic TEB selection by Telekom Electronic Beats Showcase: Mennydörgő, Flanger Kids, Ben Leavez, Fausto Mercier, DJ Mesterháza and Normál Tamás.
