In the lead up to Summit 2022, Beacons Cymru are running Basecamp events across the country, starting with the University of South Wales, Cardiff. The event was a chance for young people to meet local music industry heroes, connect with like-minded young people, and get more knowledge and new opportunities.
The event took place yesterday in the Zen Bar at the Atrium, Cardiff, and included talks talks on Music Journalism, Production, marginalised communities, live music. There was also the opportunity to network with industry professionals.
