IFF Returns

With leading UK booking agencies and festivals on board, the International Festival Forum (IFF) is all set for another sold-out edition.  

Coda, Primary Talent, X-ray Touring, United Talent Agency, ITB and ATC Live are among the agencies supporting the IFF for a second time. Partnering for the first time is Creative Artists Agency (CAA). All agencies will showcase their talent Sept. 28-29 in Camden’s historic Dingwalls venue.

The mornings will see panels and workshops take place at the neighboring Proud Camden.

“The early Autumn timing of IFF is ideal for agents and festival bookers getting together to discuss the following year,” Coda’s Rob Challice said. “We were proud to be involved with IFF’s debut last year and we’re thrilled to be back as a partner on this year’s edition.” Last year’s premiere sold out 400 tickets.

“We’ll be offering a limited number of extra passes to festivals, but ostensibly keeping the same vibe,” said ILMC head Greg Parmley, who co-organises the event with Ruud Berends (Networking Music).

Also on board for this year’s edition are festival associations Yourope, De Concert! and IFEA Europe.

Yourope’s general secretary, Christof Huber, said he was excited to be part of “what is fast becoming one of the key international music industry showcases.”
