Thanks to everybody who came along to the ‘Doing It Yourself’ Music Industry Panel at the Muni Arts Centre, Pontypridd, on the 30th of March. The event coinceded with BBC Wales Music Day and the audience were able to draw on the expertise of industry profesionals here in Wales.
Here are some photo’s.

The Panelists: (from left to right) Gareth Lawrence (Tha Blackout), Romesh Dodangoda (Longwave Studios), John Davies (The Factory), Matt Lissack (Capital FM) and John Rostron (Swn Festival).
It wasn't too long before the first questions were fired at the guests.
Star of the Show? Gareth Lawrence of The Blackout discusses "chasing your dreams" v's "smalltown mentality."
Who said these things can't be both fun and informative?
