WHAT IS OUTBREAKERS’ LAB?
Outbreakers’ Lab (OBL), run by HOTS - Hungarian Oncoming Tunes, is a mentoring camp for emerging artists from all over Europe, dedicated to those who seek knowledge and inspiration on how to upgrade their career or/and break out from the borders of their own domestic markets. From an experimental project dedicated to Hungarian artists and taking place in the village of Martely, OBL grew into an international event with the ambition to become one of the most important regional events for developing an artist’s potential. Join us, especially that the edition 2019 will take place in impressive Szigliget castle.

FRAMEWORK & MENTORS
Outbreakers’ Lab will take place between 25 - 28th of August 2019 in Szigliget, Hungary. For three days artists will work on their individual goals with international mentors on "one to one" sessions, workshops, outdoor panels and non-official gatherings. OBL is a live experience designed to transfer professional knowledge and innovative tools, inspire and exchange ideas. The inner dynamic of the Lab is driven by a great knowledge of mentors - the team of excellent experts representing different angles of the music industry. The OBL mentoring team 2019 will be represented, amongst others, by Magda Chołyst (Artist in Bloom, PL), Andries van Wieren (3S Music Management, NL), Andraz Kajzer (Festival MENT Ljubljana, SE).
Artists will have a unique opportunity to develop their skills in planning a long-term career, goal-setting, understanding festival and tour strategies, a&r processes, budget and income planning. The Lab covers also basic terms of the industry and most crucial mental health practices. The OBL purpose is also to give participants a space to create a common fellowship, become more inspirational colleagues, not competitors on the market of emerging European acts.
