AGAINST ALL TIDES: An introduction about Music Curatorship

The past months we have been working quite secretly on a very special project called Against All Tides: An Introduction on music curatorship. A collaboration between GET ME and BIRD produced this short documentary called Against All Tides starring our own favourite promoter Guido van Dieren. To celebrate this we will organize an exclusive discussion forum about today’s changing music landscape and the role of music curatorship within this. Not only will we have the honour to welcome Guido van Dieren himself, but also we heard that he might even get special company of Rich Medina (USA) and Errol Anderson (Boilerroom London).
