Emma ZillmanProgramme Director, From the Fields
Emma has loved live music ever since attending a school Battle of the Bands competition circa 1999.
As Programming Director at From The Fields, she is responsible for overseeing music and comedy bookings onto multiple stages across the festival portfolio. This includes the Manchester city centre music industry conference and emerging artist festival Off The Record, as well as the newly launched Manchester Podcast Festival, and any additional one-offs or special projects.
A lover of new music, she’s never happier than watching a crowd go nuts to a great live band… whether in a dark room or a (usually) damp field.
