Conference: Technology, peace, love and Bella Union

November 28 2016


In our 20th anniversary year, we can offer you another essential programme of talks, panels and VIP encounters. Our diverse line-up aims to educate, inspire and help you think outside the box, whether you’re a music industry insider, an ambitious newcomer, an artist or manager, or are simply burning to find out how the modern music business works today and in the future.
As well as practical guides on marketing, promotion and revenue generation, we’ll be focusing on the increasingly crucial role of Influencers in music and culture, and asking how the current worldwide political upheavals could affect the music world – and how the music world can fight back.

We are well on the way to firming up next year’s conference programme and we’re proud to be able to announce the following already:
