Stourbridge Music Network

Much the same as BMN, The Stourbridge Music Network is a place for anyone working or studying in the music business to come and meet and have a dialogue with others.

Meeting regularly at the fantastic Base Studios, they are for anyone from music student, solo performer and songwriter to sound engineer, record company, agent, manager, publisher or producer and you can attend and network for free.

Whether you want to find out things, source local collaborations or make announcements, the Stourbridge Music Network is ideal for providing a forum for musicians and music businesses of all genres, experience and backgrounds.

SMN is run by Sostenuto, a local company that delivers quality funded projects for and using the Creative Industries.

Our next meeting is Thursday 16th December at 7.30pm at Base Studios, Rufford Road Trading Estate, Stourbridge.

The event is free and refreshments are provided.
