Sound Summit Tickets
Sound Summit Tickets
Sound Summit is the name for two separate and distinct music festivals: one in Australia and one in the United States. The Sound Summit, held since 2000 in Newcastle, New South Wales, Australia, is part conference, part festival. Contained within the larger This Is Not Art Festival, the event concentrates on new, unusual and experimental music. This Sound Summit was started by Sebastian Chan, Marcus Westbury and Kenny Sabir at the turn of the millennium and has grown thanks to the participation of artists in the Electrofringe Festival also taking place in Newcastle then. The US Sound Summit Festival has been held since 2015 at the Mountain Theater in Mount Tamalpais State Park (Mount Tam) in San Francisco, Calif.
Sound Summits - Domestic & International
The Australian Sound Summit not only features performances but also musician development workshops. These workshops explore audio mastering, manipulating sound, production methods and business development topics including promotion, managing labels, royalties and licensing for independent artists and labels. Starting out as an offshoot of the National Independent Labels Conference, as of 2006, the multifaceted event is held under the auspices of MusicNSW, the Music Association of New South Wales for contemporary music industry members and artists. The US Sound Summit is presented by Roots and Branches Conservancy, a non-profit based in San Francisco, Calif., committed to preserving national resources. That includes cultural as well as physical resources, such as music, visual art, narrative and socio-political resources. Sound Summit is billed as "A Benefit for the Mountain" and supports the continued preservation and conservation of Mount Tam. In its first three years, Sound Summit raised close to $200,000.
