UK 101: How to break your band in the UK

Everything you should know about the UK music market, one of the most influential, creative and fast-changing musical environments in the world. We'll suggest practical ideas for developing your act in the UK.

Success in the UK punches above its weight in terms of influence worldwide and breaking through here can often lead to success in Europe and worldwide. This session will give you an insight into the idiosyncrasies of the UK market and how acts like Adele, The XX, Mumford and Sons and Ellie Goulding have all used their base in the UK as an incubator before going global.

Experienced music professionals will share case studies of what previously successful acts have done and how they’ve achieved what they have.

It will be an interactive panel – we’ll encourage participation and questions from the audience to make sure the discussion is relevant and the ideas generated are as practical as possible.
