Westside Music Sweden (WMS) works with support and export of music originating from west Sweden. We hope to speed up the process regarding development and establishment for music companies that works with artists active internationally, by being on site where it’s relevant. WMS also brings promotors and venues from its area together, with the interest of reaching more international artists for the region.

WMS will be present at festivals and conferences in Europe, and beyond, with artists and representatives working to further spread the talent that is growing at home and represented by professionals from the area.

WMS also hosts its own event, VIVA GBVG, a music conference and club festival in Gothenburg. The conference takes place in the venue Pustervik while the live program happens at venues Bengans and Oceanen. VIVA is international in that sense that (almost) all panels are in English and for the coming years we hope to make the event relevant for people from many markets and countries.
