The independent music industry is set to come together for a one-day event to address the question, ‘is the punk ethic alive and kicking?
The day of seminars, keynote speeches, networking and live performances has been organised by City University, London, with Tileyard Education and the wider independent music industry.
Forty years on from the punk explosion, the event will explore the new punks of 2016 and ask if the ethos is alive and well in Britain’s DIY creative sector.
It takes place on 18 May on the City University campus and and features a keynote address from Alison Wenham, chief executive of AIM, plus talks from a host of independent music industry entrepreneurs.
There will also be a lunch hour music video hack with Rotor Video, a networking hour and an after party at The Slaughtered Lamb, with performances from Carl Olander, Lorraine Jordan, The Strangers and more.
Speakers and participating companies include PRS for Music, PPL, Marathon Artists, Tileyard Music, Pledgemusic, MMF, BASCA, Notting Hill Music and more.
Places are strictly limited to 100. For more info and details on how to attend, please see https://www.facebook.com/events/244785522539775/
