Parenting in the music industry is more than just finding a caretaker while you’re out on the road. Being a music parent is about writing and sending emails with your kids in the next room, it’s about finding studios that let you bring your children, and it’s about managing the stigma associated with being a parent. Parents are not only welcome at BreakOut West 2023, they are encouraged!

Childcare Suite

Did you know we've engaged a childcare suite at BreakOut West for artists and industry travelling with children? We're happy for you to make use of this room to take care of your children away from the hum drum of the conference. For more information email
