BBC Music Introducing Live is returning to London’s Tobacco Dock on 31st October – 2nd November following its success of last year.
It’s a one-stop-shop for anyone looking for a career in the music industry, or those wanting to expand current knowledge or get into more detail with a varied programme comprising panels, talks, ‘in conversation’ chats, debates, careers advice and more from leading names in the world of music.
BBC DJs and producers, as well as artists and top names from brands, record labels and streaming services will be there to offer careers guidance, insider knowledge and advice, along with behind the scenes insights for taking the next steps in music.
Last year 15,000 young people attended the event, including some from over 50 colleges and Universities across the UK.
Over 250 emerging and established artists took part, with thousands more artists attending seeking opportunities.
More than 700 speakers from the music industry were there, including Adele’s manager Jonathan Dickins, Kano, Jax Jones, Nile Rodgers, and Zoe Ball with Glastonbury’s Emily Eavis.
BBC DJs including Annie Mac, Huw Stephens, Steve Lamacq and DJ Target were also present, and there were secret surprise performances from the likes of Clean Bandit, Tom Grennan and Declan McKenna and huge live music events each evening, with Ben Howard and Deadmau5 taking to the stage to perform.
Over 20 hours of shows were broadcast live from the studio during the event across BBC Radio 1, Radio 2, 1Xtra and 6 Music.
