Glimps is an international showcase festival in Ghent, Belgium. Turkish jazz, Slovakian indie, or French electro: more than 70 artists from all over Europe play at 11 venues. The audience makes its way along the several stages that are spread over the city centre of Ghent: from small clubs, to prestigious concert halls. Of course, Glimps is not only about discovering new bands. It's also about broadening your horizons on a professional level. Apart from the many concerts, Glimps offers an interesting conference section, where you can get to know other music professionals from all over the world. There will be a whole lot of interesting panels, discussions, and workshops. The conference focuses on themes that are relevant for the time of day, and for the ever-changing situations of whatever kind the music industry is in. Speakers are invited to give keynote speeches on these topics, or host debates to get a better understanding of each others point of view. During well-hosted speed meetings and a networking lunch, you have the possibility to meet new people, who you might work with in the future; or make new contacts who can help you to get a better view on certain foreign music scenes. Apart from that, you also get to know the lovely city of Ghent: you can discover tons of cool venues, and see the historical center of one of the most beautiful cities in Western Europe. Plus, it’s in Belgium. We have beer.
