Interested in the live music industry?

Live UK and ACM’s BDC Team have joined forces to give you the chance to attend a unique Live Music Industry Event at a very special student price.

The Live UK Summit (9th-10th October) – hosted at The Radisson Blu Portman Hotel, Portman Square, London – is the only event dedicated to engaging and supporting the live music industry. As well as host of top name speakers including John Giddings, Rob Hallett and Steve Strange, 2012’s event will also focus on the next generation of live music sector entrepreneurs.

Tickets for this live industry forum usually retail for £85 for a single day pass, ACM students can attend this special event for as little as £40 (+VAT).

The event will also feature a number of live music industry sessions from those working in the sector to inspire attendees – sessions include:

  • Computer Says Yes
  • Pioneers of new tech solutions for marketing and managing live shows explain how their services and products work.

  • Taking Control
  • Developing new artistes has never been easier or cheaper and there’s a plethora of DIY tools and resources available. Experts explain how to make the most of it.

  • Masters of the Universe
  • Some of the UK’s top international agents explain how they help to open new markets, develop acts’ careers and maintain sustainability within the live sector.

  • The Social Beast
  • One Direction sold out nine 2013 dates at The O2 – more than 150,000 tickets – via social networks alone. How socially active are you?

  • Captive Audiences
