YAMsession 2017: Call for Productions

Showcase your music production for young audiences!

  • over 3 years ago

YAMsession is looking for the world’s best live music productions for young audiences to showcase at the upcoming YAMsession in Porto (Portugal) from the 4th to the 6th September 2017.

YAMsession is an annual international event for creative professionals working in the field of young audiences music development: producers, bookers, organisers, intellectuals and artists.

Hear what Rune Thorsteinsson from Body Rhythm Factory (Denmark) had to say about performing at YAMsession:

"Being part of the YAMsession was a great experience! We got a lot concert offers on that account - more than we can actually play, so that was really positive. I can highly recommend a trip to wherever the YAMsession is taking place, it's a great event and a great show window for young audiences musicians.” 

YAMsession takes place in a different country every year and includes showcases of the best young audiences productions from Europe and the world, a dynamic Producers Forum and a wide range of thought provoking presentations and discussions from international speakers. Delegates shall also have the opportunity to enjoy the YAMawards Ceremony, where the world's best music productions for young audiences are crowned.
