Louder Than Words Festival is once again delighted to be working with specialist music book publisher Omnibus Press as the Official Sponsor of the Louder Than Words’ Manchester weekend Festival.
Louder Than Words Festival is the recognised literary event that celebrates words – oral, written and published – about music and its related industries.
Our 2015 Manchester weekend Festival took place 13-15 November, at the prestigious Palace Hotel in the heart of the city. Over the weekend, attendees, guests, sponsors and contributors celebrated the best of published and unpublished words associated with the music and popular culture industries. The Festival welcomed authors, journalists, bloggers, lyricists, singer-songwriters, performers, performance poets, academics, aspiring writers and those for whom music is far more than simply background candy.
Our Festival programme featured in-conversation sessions, panel discussions, workshops, lectures, performances, interviews and casual opportunities to engage with fellow delegates, contributors, and related professionals.
Louder Than Words creator and curator, Dr Jill Adam said: “We’re absolutely delighted to be working with Omnibus Press and we look forward to developing this exciting relationship, and the Festival, together in the years to come. Our partnership brings together the largest publisher of music related books in the world with the distinctive dedicated literary Festival for the music industry – undoubtedly a heady mix for creativity and innovation – watch this space!”
Sales Director at Omnibus Press Matt Bourne said: “We are delighted, proud and genuinely honoured to be working alongside Louder than Words. The Festival acknowledges and reflects the diversity of music publishing; a diversity that mirrors music itself and one of the primary reasons we have a passion for both industries. I can’t think of a better way to celebrate this diversity than to be part of such an exciting weekend, one which I’m sure is destined to become a major event on the literary festival calendar.”
