After summer, there is work!

Summer’s almost gone, and a wicked season is upon us. This year we’ve already been out quite some but still we got more to do.

Westside Music Sweden reps and/or artists will be taking part in a number of events starting late August spanning all the way to  December when we host our own event, Viva Sounds!

This be our schedule from here;

08.31-09.02 @ c/o Pop, Cologne, DE
WMS is visiting this classic festival for a possible, and coherent, co-op in 2019.

09.19-22 @ Reeperbahn Festival, Hamburg, DE
Hosting our own showcase at Europe’s finest, just like last year. Reception as well, come eat pizza and get inside before it’s too late.

09.28-29 @ Fira B!, Mallorca, ES
New partner in España, and Annelie is taking the trip along a rep from WMS.

09.28-10.06 @ Braga Music Week, Braga, PT
One of the coolest city (and street sometimes) festivals there is. We’re happy to be part of this again, having Tilde Hjelm doing duo-shows this year.

10.05-08 @ Zandari Festa, Seoul, KR
Our first Asian trip took place last year, and this year WMS is invited back – Browsing Collection doing it again, backed up by a grateful invitation for the platform.

10.26-27 @ BIME, Bilbao, ES
Moving on up here, this year we’ll double the talent by having Agent Blå and The Bongo Club playing, and next year we might be even more up in the mix of this fine event.

11.19-24 @ Monkey Week, Seville, ES
Ah, our fourth year in the south of Spain visiting Monkey Week, aka, Monkeys With Attitudes, aka The Mighty Gorilla. Thrilled as always!

12.07-08 @ Viva Sounds, Gothenburg, SE
Our own event is growing a bit, a few more slots, a few more venues, more music and a better conference. We did learn some stuff last year, and will try to use that knowledge to get on the map with this.


Hello Hamburg, again!

Since packing venue Pooca Bar from start to finish last year during Reeperbahn Festival, how could we say no to that stuff again? We couldn’t.

This year we’ll add up on guitars and noise when going down there as the line-up includes the following very much happening acts, thank you very much;

The evening will be called This is: Westside Music Sweden, because that’s what it is. No EDM, no in-house producers. Just music, real music. Catch us when there – Thursday 20th of September, bring all the glory you got.

Spring getting busy!

Action, only a few words. 

Festival season got us scheming with SWR BARROSELAS METALFESTMUSEXPOEast Coast Music Association (ECMA)Liverpool Sound CitySPOT FestivalFOCUS Wales and Festival Marvin CDMX – where we’ll be slinging sounds from from We Dream Alone, FIREBREATHER, The Bongo Club, Easy October, Tilde Hjelm & The Desert Orchids, Topplock, Orkan, Two Year Vacation, ANNELIE and Linn Koch-Emmery to the masses! Damn!

How about Wales?

In partnership with Focus Wales!

Proud to announce a partnership with FOCUS Wales, to strengthen the musical exchange between west Sweden and Wales. This May Orkan and Two Year Vacation will be live and loud in Wrexham during FOCUS Wales 2018. More to follow!

FOCUS Wales is a not-for-profit organization, established to provide the annual new music showcase event for the Welsh Music Industry. Our core work centers around the delivery of our annual multi-venue showcase festival taking place in Wrexham each Spring, which places the music industry spotlight firmly on the emerging talent that Wales has to offer the world. FOCUS Wales 2019 will mark the festival’s 9th edition, and will welcome over 10,000 people to the town, building upon 2018′s record attendance across a jam-packed weekend of events. There’s no place like Wrexham during FOCUS Wales, as we showcase 200+ bands from across the world, fill out a variety of spaces and music venues, using 20 stages, and hosting a full schedule of Interactive Industry Sessions, Stand-up Comedy, Arts events, and Film screenings, throughout the festival. In addition to the delivery of the FOCUS Wales festival, we also deliver a number international FOCUS Wales events throughout the year.

Festival Marvin – Mexico City!

Annelie and Linn Koch-Emmery are flying out to Mexico!

It’s our second year in and happy to say we’re getting along well with the amazing Festival Marvin CDMX in the music capital of the world – Mexico City! Quite proud to say we got two acts going this time as both ANNELIE and Linn Koch-Emmery are part of this really cool line-up.

Also, somewhat extra fat cheese we’re hooking up with the promoter Tiempos Compartidos to set more shows up with Annelie on the same trip.  ¡A huevo!
