ADE SPECIAL
As part of BRIDGES FOR MUSIC partnership with ADE and having inspired one of the central themes for this year's program, it is with great poignancy that Bridges for Music's discussion panel   Focus On South Africa will be one of the opening events at this year's conference.
 
Respected producer Black Coffee, Cadenza founder Luciano and Bridges for Music ambassador Sir Vincent Manzini will all participate in a panel discussion hosted by Bridges For Music co-founder and director Valentino Barrioseta which will take place on Wednesday 16th October at 5pm. Following the panel discussion, Bridges For Music will be teaming up with leading broadcasters Boiler Room to host a very special take-over showcasing South African talent. Featuring sets from Luciano, Black Coffee, Mirko Loko, Jullian Gomez and Diloxclusiv vs Sir Vincent. Bridges For Music Boiler Room takeover will be broadcast between 8pm - 11pm on this linkboilerroom.tv
 
Thursday 17th October will see a panel titled "Meet The South Africans" hosted by the Breathe Sunshine African Music Conference and Black Mango Music founder Trenton Birch. Trenton has a leading role in representing Bridges For Music in South Africa, and played a key part in facilitating the connection between ADE director Richard Zijlama and Breathe Sunshine African Music conference, which hosted him in Cape Town and went onto influence the South African representation at this years conference. 
 
Bridges for Music has sponsored 2 artists and entrepreneurs from the townships of Cape Town to attend this year's conference and participate in the panel, Diloxclusiv and Sir Vincent. The funds come from donations by the Cape Town Electronic Music Festival, after the Bridges For Music ambassador, Richie Hawtin's show earlier this year. They will be joined by Bridges For Music director Valentino Barrioseta and Black Coffee to shine a spotlight on this vibrant scene with a particular focus on the recent explosion of house music.
