As this year's festival line-ups continue to roll in to take advantage of our reckless payday spending, Soma Skool is the latest Scottish festival to announce the first wave of names for its 2020 edition.

Returning to its usual home of SWG3, Soma Skool takes place on Saturday 28 March, 1-5.30pm, ahead of Maximum Pressure's Spring Edition headlined by techno pioneer Jeff Mills. It's a day of discussions, demos, panels and more, aiming to help you take your first or next steps in the world of electronic music.

We'll be hosting a panel discussion at this year's event, focusing on Glasgow's underground music scene and featuring some of the city's brightest talents – Nightwave, Clouds' Liam Robertson, DJ Scotia and Taahliah. Other panels taking place throughout the day include a PR & Marketing discussion hosted by Electric Shores' Jenn Nimmo-Smith, and a discussion on mental health in the industry curated by Clubber2Clubber.

The main artist panel will include Berlin-based DJ Dr. Rubinstein, Jensen Interceptor – who will also participate in a production masterclass, alongside India Jordan and Petrichor – Glasgow's own Slam and Setaoc Mass. Resident Advisor will make their debut at the event, hosting an in-depth music journalism workshop, while Nightwave will provide a DJ masterclass in The Poetry Club, sponsored by Pioneer DJ alongside Rubadub and Skapade.

Rosie Shannon, Project Manager at Soma Skool, says: “After two successful years in SWG3, the demand for an event of this kind in Scotland is evident and Soma Records are delighted to be bringing back Soma Skool in 2020 for its third year. We have found a passion in delivering educational music events to the people of Scotland, and passing the mic to people from all over the world in the industry.”
