Eight New Emerging Artists

December 12 2018


Between now and Christmas there will be one more solid artist and conference announcement from by:Larm Festival. The programme is really starting to take shape, and we are continuing to consolidate our position as the Nordic region’s biggest music industry showcase festival. On the musical front, we can at last announce a band that has been on many people’s best-of lists recently: Aiming for Enrike. The group will play as part of by:Larm Black, and they assure us it’ll be spiky, rough, colourful, fascinating and above all incredibly fun. Otherwise there’s plenty of rap in this bulletin. One of the most exciting rappers we know, slowthai (UK), will be visiting by:Larm from the UK, as well as Swedish rapper Erik Lundin (SE), Norwegian rapper Pen Gutt and American rapper Paris (US), who could be compared to a slightly more reckless version of Post Malone. Electronic artist Kelly Moran (US), Americana band Silver Lining and electronic fusion band ISÁK are also added to the line-up.

Our forward-looking Conference programme is represented by five new events in this announcement. We’ll be focusing on plastic in GO Group’s The Plastic Age, in which we share tips on best practice and inspiring examples of how you can break the dependency on plastics in the promotional and music industry. Maybe it’s possible to go totally plastic-free?
Our regular Conference partner Music Ally will divulge the hottest technological trends in What’s Now, What’s Next: Future Trends, and mentions various digital tendencies in our Need To Know Guide to 2019.
Twitch, YouNow and other gigantic live streaming services have become a big part of the business model in the gaming industry. In the session Learning from Livestreams: Gamers, Vloggers and Musicians, we’ll share the secrets of how to earn thousands every week from live streaming.
The question, ‘What is AI music?’ will be answered in Plug Me In: The Sonic Robots Are Here. Whether you are an artist, label, promoter, manager or fan, you’ll discover what the prospects are for music and AI in the future.
