You Bloom Music Conference TImetable and Speakers

Dave Robinson

The second part of the YouBloom festival is one for music nerds (of which I’m proud to include myself in). It’s a music conference which focuses on the various elements of the industry behind the music. They really have pulled out all the stops to get names from all parts of the industry in this two day event.The List of speakers at the event can be found here, but Dave Robinson’s keynote address should not be missed. All events take place in the College of Surgeons, St. Stephens Green, Dublin 2.

With 40+years at the sharp end of the music industry, Dave Robinson has seen it all. Having briefly managed Jimi Hendrix, Dave went onto co-found Stiff Records (Nick Lowe, The Damned, Motorhead, Elvis Costello, Madness, Lene Lovich, The Pogues and many more) and eventually head up Island Records where he oversaw the careers of U2, Robert Palmer, Frankie Goes to Hollywood, working with legendary producer Trevor Horn. He has also worked with US artists Johnny Cash, the Black Crowes, Slayer and the Jayhawks, and at Island was instrumental in the compilation and marketing of Bob Marley’s 36million selling LEGEND Album. Dave later went on to run the famous Blue Note Club and Acid Jazz Label in London, helping to launch the Acid House and the Drum & Bass movements.

From the other speakers at the event, Vince Bannon – Getty Images, US, Nigel Grainge – Ensign Records, UK, Rupert Hine – BMG Chrysalis, UK, Siobhan O’Dowd – Electric Picnic, IRL, Donal Scannell – Gigstarter, IRL
