Bishops Road, Inverness
XpoNorth, formerly goNORTH, is Scotland's leading creative industries festival. A hotbed of creative activity, the conference and showcase take places over two exciting and energising days and nights in the Highland capital.
By day, XpoNorth hosts a packed programme of seminars and workshops featuring leading players from across the international creative industries. By night, the festival sets the city alight with creativity, from the event’s firmly established new music showcase soundtracking a host of city centre venues with over 60 of the hottest new acts around, to a specially curated short film programme and a range of relaxed networking events and parties.
The magic of the festival is its unique atmosphere; the XpoNorth experience offers delegates across the creative spectrum an inspiring daytime schedule followed by the evening music and film mix, all set against a backdrop of the beautiful Highlands of Scotland in midsummer.
Help Musicians Scotland will be hosting a panel on health and well-being in the music industry.
