Transmission Festival (Vancouver, BC)

From December 5-8, 2007, the 2nd annual Transmission festival will be held here in Vancouver. This elite music and digital industries event combines a UN-styled roundtable conference format (to debate possible new economic models for the devastated music industry) and highly curated artist showcases (that will include Montreal’s heartbreakingly brilliant Patrick Watson and Broken Social Scene cohort Apostle of Hustle, and local up & comers Mother Mother, among many others). The fest has an excellent line-up of confirmed international heavyweights and it will be interesting to see if their open discussion format can yield some productive thinking and positive results. Certainly, both the industry & its artists need all the help they can get, if they hope to continue making a business out of making music.
