1930 - 2015: Panel discussion and Q&A

The Gender Trend: Remaining authentic when tackling inequality


 Carly Wilford - DJ, Presenter & creator of SISTER: Pioneering new radio platform SISTER, Carly Wilford has become a trusted voice for the underground. Now bridging the gap between the UK and US electronic music scenes her dulcet tones can be found on Dash Radio in the US, Kiss FM in Australia and Data Transmission’s show on Pioneer DJ Radio.


Connie Constance - AMF/Virgin Records: Connie Constance is a 22-year-old making indie rock-influenced, off-kilter soul with poetic narratives. It’s a sound that has turned heads from the NME, i-D, and The FADER, and landed her a deal with AMF Records, but has few contemporary peers. She’s carving out her own space by writing her own treatments for her fantastical visuals, and hosting her own live music night Pep Rally. This defiantly singular path is fitting for an artist who says that she has always felt like an outsider.

Sean Griffiths - Mixmag (Deputy Editor): Sean Griffiths has spent the past six years at Mixmag, rising from intern to become the magazine's deputy editor. He has also had his work published in The Guardian and Time Out and counts skyping Daft Punk among his career highlights.

Jenna Knight - Music & Entertainment Publicist (Jenna Knight PR): Music and Entertainments communications and PR professional with over 10 years experience in the industry; previously Director of Digital Publicity at full service music and entertainment agency WMA, and senior roles at Sony Music and Lucid Group. Worked with a range of high profile domestic and international talent including Beyonce, DJ Mustard, Professor Green, Olly Murs and brands including Vevo and MTV. Now working and living in Bristol, and running her own business looking after artists including Kojey Radical and Jamz Supernova. One of the Directors in Bristol Women in Music, Jenna is also a regular guest lecturer at BIMM Bristol and is the marketing and PR mentor for Multi-Track Home Grown Heat initiative. Jenna has also worked in a mentor capacity with organisations including ELAM, Creative Youth Network, The Princes Trust.

Tom Paine - Team Love: Tom Paine is one half of Team Love, an independent Bristol-based festival company who programme and produce events such as Love Saves The Day, Simple Things, The Downs and Love International.  He has lived in Bristol for the last 15 or so years and managed music venues such as The Arc Bar, Tube and Motion, as well as worked on production teams for Glastonbury Festival and Secret Garden Party
