Music Showcase 2012

Music Showcase 2012


The Nerve Centre's second annual Showcase Music industry development programme came to town on Friday June 22 with a host of heavy hitting industry players. The day introduced aspiring music industry entrepreneurs, music creatives, bands and production professionals to the diverse and rapidly changing world of music in the 21st century.

The Demo Clinic was the highpoint of an immensely successful and wide ranging programme which saw contributions from Cahir O'Doherty (Fighting With Wire /, Paul Hamill (BBC radio / Inflyte Records / Psycatron), Rory Campbell (Forde Campbell LLP), Mark Gordon (Score Draw Music) and Stephen McCauley (BBC radio / Culture Glitch) to name but a few.

Martin McGill, music programme manager at the Nerve Centre said: 'It was a pleasure to host an event that allows the musical talent of Derry to interact with the music industry on a meaningful level and we are looking forward to developing Showcase Music further over the next few years.' 

Showcase Music is supported by the Arts Council of Northern Ireland, No Cry 2, Northern Periphery Programme, European Union: European Regional Development Fund, Arts & Business Northern Ireland and North West Marketing Ltd.

The Nerve Centre would like to thank everyone who made the Showcase event such a great success, participants and funders alike.
