Friday 29th April
13:00 - 13:45
Join us as we dive into the minds of the UK’s hottest music entrepreneurs whose independent music businesses have launched the careers of JaeKay, Dapz on the Map, Meekz Manny, and Bossman Birdie. In between chart topping hits, sold out arena tours and magazine covers, there is a journey of discovery, education, failure, experimenting, risk-taking, and extreme passion. We will explore the twists and turns of pursuing a sustainable career in music, what it takes to run your own music business and manage artists as well as navigating the ever-changing landscape. And finally, we will discuss the all-important question: 'Do you have to move to London to make it in music?'
