BBC Amplify announces new sponsors including PRS for Music

BBC Music Introducing - Amplify event

BBC Music Introducing has announced a list of new partners and sponsors taking part in Amplify – a must-attend event for music obsessives which coincides with the platform’s 10th anniversary.

New partners and sponsors include PRS for Music, Musicians’ Union, AIM and PPL who will all offer unique insight, support and advice to aspiring musicians.

As M Magazine previously reported, hundreds of DJs, artists, musicians and industry experts are taking part in the two-day extravaganza which aims to show you how to make a living from making music and will connect attendees with the biggest industry names via workshops, talks and one-on-ones.

Andy Ellis, senior manager for education and outreach at PRS for Music said: ‘It’s clear that everybody involved in this event  from artists like Becky Hill and Frank Carter to DJs like MistaJam and Annie Mac  cares about helping new music creators take their next steps.

‘PRS for Music is proud to be an organisation that supports songwriters, composers, producers and music publishers, not just by ensuring they get rightfully paid for their work, but also by offering advice and support – and it will be a pleasure to do so while celebrating both 10 years of BBC Introducing and the first year of Amplify.’

Amplify will feature more than 250 industry speakers including The Libertines, Blossoms, The Courteeners, Hurts, Frank Carter, Becky Hill, Bugzy Malone, Creeper, The Hunna, Ray BLK, Annie Mac, Jo Whiley, Steve Lamacq, Annie Nightingale, Huw Stephens, MistaJam, Jamie Cullum, Phil Taggart, Bob Harris, Danny Howard, Tom Robinson, DJ Target, Twin B, Monki, Abbie Mcarthy, Sophie Little, Georgie Rogers and Yasser – plus record labels, heads of music, radio stations, producers, commissioners and more.

The full line-up of sessions can be found on the Amplify website.
