YAMsession is an annual international event for creative professionals working in the field of young audiences music development: producers, bookers, organisers, intellectuals and artists.

"Being part of the YAMsession was a great experience! We got a lot concert offers on that account - more than we can actually play, so that was really positive. I can highly recommend a trip to wherever the YAMsession is taking place, it's a great event and a great show window for young audiences musicians.” 

Rune Thorsteinsson,
Body Rhythm Factory (Denmark)
