February’s Happy Hour will feature Chris Porter, a 27-year music industry veteran who has worked in several facets of the industry, most recently as programming director of Bumbershoot: Seattle’s Music & Arts Festival. Ever wondered how festivals are curated, what’s involved in programming an event the size and scale of Bumbershoot, and what are the key industry factors that can affect what bands are booked on which stages? Chris will draw back the curtain and share his industry experience with festival programming. He’ll also provide insight into what artists and musicians can do to catch the eye of a promoter or festival programmer, elevate their presence, and get noticed. The monthly Happy Hour is a meetup for leaders in film, music and interactive industries to share, learn, and make meaningful business connections. Join us in the converging world of original music, independent films, interactive platforms, and emerging technologies at Spitfire in Belltown from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.
