Now in its seventh iteration, Resonate has become the industry’s leading conference for musical creatives with a passion for learning and collaboration.

Resonate also revealed that all Resonate Live showcase artists will benefit from a tailored mentorship program, a £300 artist fee, £100 travel stipend, £500 specialized development fund, and extensive marketing and promotional support.
“It’s a really exciting Resonate ahead this year; securing funding from PRS Foundation has allowed us to offer this amazing opportunity to Scottish artists. I can’t wait to see how this develops and I hope in turn will benefit the Scottish music industry” said Kayleigh Robin the Resonate Project Manager.
Having firmly established its place in the national music calendar, Resonate continues to open doors for collaboration, creativity, inclusivity, and growth. With unwavering determination, this conference aims to equip the music community with a roster of distinguished speakers, top-tier activities, and a conducive environment for musicians and industry professionals to candidly discuss the current challenges and opportunities.
“BBC Introducing in Scotland helped curate and chair two panels. The speakers and delegates alike brought the day to life. Resonate is an essential and informal space to meet people dedicated to and passionate about music in Scotland” remarked Lindsay Gilles of BBC Introducing.
