Born To Be Wide Celebrates 6th Birthday with German Night
Scotland’s leading music scene social night, Born to be Wide, is hosting a special German Music Night to celebrate its sixth birthday.
Born to Be Wide was founded in 2004 to provide a meeting place for those involved or interested in the Scottish music scene.
Berlin duo Jeans Team, whose track Keine Melodien has featured on everything from a VW Golf ad to a 2 Many DJs compilation, will play live at the event after a seminar from some of Germany’s leading music professionals.
The speakers, who include veteran music journalist Christian Stollberg and Reeperbahn Festival managing director Alex Schulz, will be giving advice on European music trends, getting gigs in Europe and which festivals to go to.
Born to Be Wide co-organiser Olaf Furniss says, “Germany still boasts one of the biggest music markets in the world and enjoys a great reputation for its live venues, festivals and vibrant music press.
“A diverse range of Scottish artists have extremely dedicated fans in Germany including Franz Ferdinand, Travis, DJ Ewan Pearson and Amy Macdonald. We plan to bring the Scottish and German scenes closer together.”
The one off German night will be held on February 4 at the Voodoo Rooms in Edinburgh.
