Eva Davies, CPWM Label Manager on I Know A Place:

“I Know A Place will be our third conference that is all about celebrating and giving space to women and people of marginalised genders in music. It’s so empowering when we get to see people in all areas and stages of the industry talking to each other about their experiences and connecting whilst still enjoying themselves! We’re so proud to be able to bring these incredible people together and look forward to the discussions they will be able to have”
