SPIKE is the new showcase in Bulgaria.

Spike – The Bulgarian Music Showcase is scheduled to take place in the city of Plovdiv, Bulgaria between May 26-28, 2022. Bulgaria’s most historic town will welcome music business delegates from over 12 countries, including the USA and Canada. Their expertise will cover every part of the music industry, including artist booking and management; publishing, royalties, and sync licensing; digital technology workshops; and equality and diversity in the music industry. 

Formerly known as the Sofia International Music Conference (SIMC), Spike is Bulgaria’s first showcase and conference festival. Founder Boyan Robert Pinter says that “the festival’s primary goal is to create learning and networking opportunities for Bulgarian artists and professionals and to introduce international delegates to Bulgaria’s music scene. This will be done in a spirit of diversity and inclusivity.” 

“We are very happy that our event will finally go live and in person. When we started SIMC, we received a lot of international support, which gave us the confidence to continue building this platform for local artists and music professionals. We are very grateful to the city of Plovdiv (EU Capital of Culture 2019) for being our gracious host and providing us with the perfect backdrop to our activities.” 

Artist applications are currently open. The performance slots are limited and early applications are highly encouraged. The names of Spike’s rock star delegates and participating artists will be released in due course.
