Outbreakers´ Lab Hungary – August 25-28

The Outbreakers’ Lab is a mentoring camp for artists aiming to upgrade their career in the music industry. The project was founded by the Hungarian music export initiative HOTS (Hungarian Oncoming Tunes) and it is dedicated to solo artists and groups that are already experienced in the music scene and look for professional guidance in making things bigger and better.

The Outbreakers’ Lab 2019 will take place in the end of August in Szigliget, located near Lake Balaton. For three days, August 25-28, artists will work on their goals with internationally acclaimed mentors during individual sessions, workshops and group discussions. Outbreakers’ Lab is an experience designed to raise awareness of an artist´s potential, transfer professional knowledge about the music industry, mental health and its practices, inspire, exchange ideas and build an international community.
