DUmfries music conference 2019

17th - 19th October

Dumfries Music Conference is a community interest organisation that presents conferences, workshops, showcase events, panel discussions, keynote presentations and other music-related events that benefit Dumfries and the surrounding area. This year we’re proud to present our most ambitious programme featuring national and internationally renowned musicians, innovative live events, and radical venue takeovers over four venues across throughout the town.

Since DMC launched in 2012, our aim has been to galvanise the vibrant Dumfries & Galloway music scene and give it a voice on a national level. We’ve established a strong network of partners and friends from organisations that span the music industry in Scotland and beyond - some of whom you’ll see during DMC 2019.
