Here’s a date for the diary: BBC Music Introducing LIVE from 31 October to 2 November at London’s Tobacco Docks.
If you’re a budding or emerging artist, the three-day event offers you a chance to network, learn new skills, chat to music schools and get feedback from industry pros.
Some of the BBC’s top DJs will be there, so you’ll get a chance to hear what they look for in new music (and cheekily pass a demo to them, if you’re in the right place at the right time). Guests will include Trevor Nelson, Pete Tong, Annie Mac, Jo Whiley, Mary Anne Hobbs, Steve Lamacq, Phil Taggart and Huw Stephens.
There will also be a feedback centre, where industry execs will listen to demos and give constructive feedback (so don’t forget to take yours).
The final guest list is yet to be announced but Jamie Oborne, Dirty Hits label boss and 1975 manager, has been confirmed as headline speaker. A host of major artists, labels execs, tech experts and gear traders are also expected (last year Glastonbury’s Emily Eavis, rapper Example and Nile Rodgers were guests).
In terms of masterclasses, you can take your pick from learning more about A&R, songwriting, recording, producing, making demos or live looping.
Best of all it’s all affordable. Day passes start from £12.50.
