Fuse Announces Major Keynote and Guest Speakers for 2012 Festival

With only five weeks before FUSE 2012 kicks off, the festival has announced the international and national keynote speakers that will take the stage.  

Held annually in Adelaide SA, FUSE is the longest running music industry conference and showcase festival in Australia. The 2012 FUSE Festival will be held in 20 venues across the Adelaide CBD. This year the festival will again run in close association with The Adelaide Fringe Festival.
FUSE 2012 will run over three days from 22nd – 24th February, with the artist management master classes and music business conference running during the days.

Adelaide will come alive with music, across two nights with 80 bands from interstate and locally showcasing. All FUSE showcase shows (Fuse East and Fuse West) this year will be free to attend, not only for delegates but also for the music loving public!

FUSE has announced the addition of dynamic duo, Andy Cassell and Andy Kelly who comprise two thirds of Winterman & Goldstein Management, Ivy League Records and Ivy League Music Publishing. The pair (who have worked with the likes of Josh Pyke, Alpine and Paul Dempsey) will accompany one of the country’s biggest players in the music industry Brett Cottle – CEO of APRA, in presenting a key note address on all things management, label and publishing.
