ACM’s Industry Link returned for 2013 to give students an opportunity to meet and network with a host of music industry representatives.
Over the course of six hours, hundreds of ACM students from across all three ACM schools (Performance, Production and Business) filed into Guildford’s Electric Theatre to discuss all aspects of music marketing, promotion, representation and performance with representatives from 10 leading music industry companies.

- Rock Sound
- Polar Patrol

- RCA / Radio Plugger
- ATC Management
- Shoot the Pony
“I enjoyed meeting such a range of young people who were all eager to get into the industry. What was most interesting, though, is all the questions they asked made me rethink various aspects of my job from a whole different point of view, which is always refreshing.”
Ben Patashnik Rocksound
“As always, I had a great day down at the ACM chatting to some really interesting students & hearing some good music. ACM staff were most gracious hosts as ever. See you soon.”
Sean Denny RCA/Radio Plugger
“Not only was it very interesting to meet so many young talented individuals who really wanted to learn about the industry but also a great A+R source! ACM seems to constantly churn out creative young musicians who will inevitably make waves in the industry at some point in their careers.”
Mazin Tappuni Communion
“It was a pleasure to meet so many young artists with an impressive level of knowledge about the music industry, which the ACM have obviously worked hard to instil in them. I really enjoyed the day!”

Industry Link Day is a key event in ACM’s Business and Artist Development (BDC) Team calendar, offering students a chance to networking informally, give demos to music industry professionals and A&R representatives and spend time with the BDC team, other staff and students. All of these representatives are actively working in the industry and will be here to impart their knowledge so it is a golden opportunity for students to distribute their music material and make steps into the music industry.
ACM would like to thank all of those who were involved in putting on the Industry Link Day including a special thanks to all the music industry representatives (listed above) who took time out from their busy schedules to spend time with all the students who visited Industry Link Day.
Thanks must also be extended to The Electric Theatre and ACM’s BDC Team for organising the event.
We hope everyone who attended the event enjoyed the day and took something away from their time with the assembled team of music industry representatives.
ACM’s Industry Link Day will return in 2014!
