Full schedule for Sound City+2018 revealed

Diverse range of industry execs and experts will discuss artist development, new tech, mental health and more at the British Music Experience.

The full schedule for this year’s Sound City+ conference in association with Bruntwood has been revealed.

The annual Sound City + business event is the UK’s leading independent conference for new music – founded to champion the rich and diverse creative output of the North of England, in particular, but welcoming and celebrating exciting artists and leading executives from all over the world every year.

Kick starting the bank holiday weekend on Friday 4th May, the 2018 edition of Sound City+ will take over the British Music Experience and Signature Living’s Cunard House, which celebrates the UK’s finest musical exports from the last century inside Liverpool’s historical Cunard Building.

The event will welcome music industry faces from all over the world, including representatives from member festivals that make up the Innovation Network of European Showcases (INES) which is supported by Creative Europe. They’ll be discussing the opportunities open to UK and European artists, how the live industry differs in each and how to secure gigs beyond an act’s native borders.

Sound City+ will also host a series of workshops aimed at helping young talent make strides in every aspect of their career from sync to distribution to production, as well as personal development in terms of mental well-being and self-confidence.
