BBC Music has announced a brand new three day music discovery festival – BBC Music Introducing LIVE 18’. Taking place on November 8-10th 2018, the event will welcome 15,000 budding musicians and industry talent at London’s iconic Tobacco Dock. Since its launch in 2007, BBC Music Introducing has been dedicated to discovering and supporting new music.
Supported by BBC Music and the breadth of the UK Music Industry, this year’s event will build on the success of 2017’s BBC Music Introducing Amplify with a programme of inspiring performances, talks and masterclasses. BBC Radio will broadcast live from the heart of the event at Tobacco Dock throughout the three days, ahead of live concerts each evening featuring high-profile BBC Music Introducing alumni and guests.
Over 100 inspiring masterclasses and interactive sessions, practical workshops, Q&As will take place and feature over 250 speakers from all quarters of the music industry. Music industry experts ranging from the recorded, live, broadcast and digital sectors will share their insider knowledge alongside all the key UK music industry bodies, providing invaluable support for emerging home-grown talent as they take the next steps in their careers.
Featured zones will include an ‘A&R listening feedback centre’ providing one-to-one guidance on music played to the music decision makers, through to the ‘Journey Theatre’ where high profile artists will give advice on how to progress in the industry. Attendees will also have the opportunity to experience a recreation of the iconic ‘BBC Maida Vale Studio Sessions’, with practical advice in live recording from leading BBC sound engineer experts.
The event will host a wide range of activations and exhibitor spaces for music manufacturers and other relevant brands.
BBC Music Introducing LIVE 18’ will be produced by Get On Vision, a joint venture between Vision Nine and Get On Music Media.
