Words & Music: THE FUTURE OF NIGHTLIFE talk

— Strange Brew
A panel discussion about issues impacting on live music and club culture in 2021
price: Headfirst Tickets

Information:

Introducing Words & Music, a new series of bi-monthly music culture conversations at Strange Brew. Featuring a mixture of panel discussions, lectures, one-on-one artist interviews and book launches, Words & Music will explore different aspects of contemporary and historic music culture via events curated and hosted by author and music journalist Matt Anniss (Join The Future).

Chapter 1 of the Words & Music series will feature a panel discussion on the future of nightlife in Bristol and beyond. Topics on the agenda include nightlife in the COVID-19 era, the impact of Brexit, diversity and equality within nightlife, protecting venues, the relationship between nightlife and local authorities, licensing issues and problems caused by gentrification and city-centre residential development.

On the panel to discuss all this and more will be:

Carly Heath – Night-Time Econony Advisor, Bristol City Council

A familiar face on Bristol’s music scene for the last 20 years, Carly was appointed as Bristol’s first ever Night-Time Economy Advisor in April 2021. Carly is well qualified for the role, having founded and run the Don’t Panic marketing agency, promoted countless club events over the last two decades and worked for Bristol Beacon.

Laila McKenzie – Co-Author, Lady of The House; promoter; industry and club consultant; electronic music and DEI specialist

A successful music events manager, promoter and club consultant who has been working in the industry since 2002, Laila is best-known as the founder of the Parallel Dimensions and Into Darkness music events businesses, as well as being the author of Lady of the House, the first ever book about women in house music. She leads a team of BAME professionals from different socio-economic backgrounds and is a tireless advocate of social justice, diversity and equality within the music industry.

Annie McGann – Founder, Save Bristol Nightlife campaign

A tireless campaigner and champion of nightlife in our city, Annie is not only the founder of the Save Bristol Nightlife campaign and Facebook group, but also a representative of the Night-Time Industries Association and a member of the Bristol @ Night Board. She is also heavily involved in the Bristol Association of Restaurants, Bars and Independent Establishments.

Manami – Better Days

A rising star of the Bristol club scene, Manami is a DJ, producer, pianist and co-promoter of the Better Days club night. Born in Tokyo and raised in the UK, Manami is renowed for playing and making music inspired by her diverse upbringing and classical training.
