Louder Than Words Festival is delighted to announce specialist music book publisher Omnibus Press as the Official Sponsor of Louder Than Words’ 2014 Manchester weekend Festival.
The Louder Than Words Festival is a now established literary event that celebrates words – oral, written and published – about music and the industry that promotes, markets and sells it.
The Festival, held in Manchester over the weekend of November 15 & 16, takes place at the prestigious Palace Hotel where a host of writers and musicians meet to hear, share, discuss and celebrate the best of published and unpublished words associated with the music and popular culture industries. This year’s Festival plays host to over 70 contributors including authors, journalists, bloggers, lyricists, singer-songwriters, performers, performance poets, academics, aspiring writers and those for whom music is far more than simply background candy.
The Festival programme includes 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 look forward to developing this exciting relationship, and the Festival, together in 2014 and beyond. Our partnership brings together the largest publisher of music related books in the world with the distinctive dedicated literary Festival for the music industry – challenging times in both sectors call 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. This year’s festival line up truly 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. And with this year marking the 30th anniversary of Omnibus Press specialising in music publishing, I can’t think of a better way to celebrate than to be part of such an exciting occasion, one which I’m sure is destined to become a major event on the literary festival calendar.”
