The first ever London Music Conference (LMC) is launching next month, from October 11th to 13th, across multiple leading London venues including Oval Space, The Pickle Factory, Ministry of Sound, UNDR and more.
With 40+ events, the conference aims to share knowledge, build community, promote and unearth a wide range of creative talents, engaging with and exploring a great variety of dance music topics via a series of networking events, discussion panels and parties featuring the industry’s most esteemed professionals from around the world.
There will be more than 30 conference sessions, 15 label showcases, 45 events, 450 delegates, 60 speakers and 50 content partners on hand to provide an all-encompassing experience and education on a range of topics. Among these are Secrets to Success in booking, promoting and managing stars, Using Brand Partnerships To Power Music, artist meets, inspections of the London clubbing landscape, education and development of young producers, Equality in Dance Music, Masterclasses in Mixing and much more.
“It is the power of community, of shared vision, of a shared love for the creative experience of music that is at the core of London Music Conference,” says LMC Director Sam Speaight.
“Why act in isolation,” he continues “struggling against one another to scratch out and guard our own little patch of dirt, when instead we can come together and co-exist be empowered to create better business, better culture and better music?
London Music Conference is a convergence point for this idea, and hopes to facilitate the fostering of cooperation, co-existence and community within music and the music industry on an international scale.
As the conference evolves we hope that its growth will fuel an ever increasing empowerment of the artists, fans and professionals in the UK music space through the power of community and co-creation.”
