David Gedge to speak at PrimaveraPro 2012

Gedge, who formed the indie band in 1985, will be interviewed by Guardian journalist Luke Bainbridge in a panel entitled Making a Living as an Artist in The Music Industry.

The pair will discuss Gedge's musical career, which has seen him secure indie success on his own Reception Records, sign to a major label and equal Elvis Presley's singles chart record in the UK, split up the band to form Cinerama and then re-form The Wedding Present in 2004.

The panel reflects one of three central themes at PrimaveraPro 2012 - the role of musicians in their careers.

PrimaveraPro 2012 takes place from Wednesday May 30 to Friday June 1 at the Hotel Zero in Barcelona, next door to the Primavera Sound festival site. Gedge will appear at 11am on Thursday May 31.

The event will include more than thirty conferences, workshops, presentations and receptions within the framework of DayPro, as well as exclusive showcases from acts including Sub Pop-signed South African rapper Spoek Mathambo and Canadian MC Cadence Weapon as part of the NightPro line up.
