DJ Manami heads list of speakers at new Bristol music culture talks
Bristol’s nightlife czar also features
DJ Manami is among the speakers at the first in a new series of conversational panels – Words & Music – at Bristol’s Strange Brew venue this coming October 5.
With the first event focusing on the future of nightlife in the era of COVID-19, featured panelists include Bristol Council’s Night Time Economy Advisor Carly Heath, Lady of the House author Laila McKenzie, Save Bristol Nightlife founder Annie McGann, and DJ/producer Manami.
Throughout the series, panelists will discuss a range of issues impacting on live music, club culture and performing arts in 2021. The talks will come in the form of a Q&A, in which opportunities will arise for audience members to participate and pose questions to the panel.
The series was founded by author, music journalist and Bristolian DJ Matt Anniss – host of similar sessions at music events including We Out Here, No Bounds, Inner City Electronic, The Alberta Electronic Music Festival and Pikes at Marston Park. All W&M events will be programmed and hosted by Anniss, forming part of his longstanding Join The Future project – which aims to document forgotten or overlooked aspects of electronic music and club culture.
All W&M events will take place on a bi-monthly basis at Strange Brew, exploring the different aspects of contemporary and historic music culture. Future events will include one-on-one, on-stage interviews with musicians, DJs and authors, TED Talk-style lectures, book launches and panel discussions.
Tickets for the opening event in the series, on Tuesday October 5, are available on a pay-what-you-like basis via the Headfirst Bristol website and mobile application. For more information, visit: www.jointhefuture.net and www.strangebrewbristol.com
