The British Council's Music team works in partnership with UK festivals and event producers to host international delegations to UK showcases. These visits enable overseas festival directors, promoters, producers and programmers to make connections with their UK counterparts and see a wide range of innovative UK music.
Through attendance at one of these showcases, delegates can:
- See exciting new and innovative contemporary British work, performed to the highest standard within a specialist field
- Create new links and/or strengthen existing ones between the contemporary music sector in the UK and contacts overseas
- Meet with peers from the UK and many other countries and discuss possible creative collaborations, co-commissions and partnership projects
We have worked with an array of UK festivals and events over the years and brought numerous international figures from a broad range of countries and musical backgrounds.
