The Unconference panels, workshops, presentations & networking

The Unconference is a day of panels, workshops, presentations and networking for those working in, or aspiring to work in the music industry, as part of Live At Leeds and Leeds International Festival. If you are involved in music at any level and hope to gain a better understanding of the music industries – as an artist, producer, manager, promoter, enthusiast or otherwise, you can attend the event to find out more from leading experts and professionals.

This years’ Unconference will feature artist & industry keynote speakers and panel discussions hosted by our partner organisations including:

*PRS Foundation on music funding and development with artists who have benefited from their Momentum fund

*Music Managers Forum on the future of music management, how the landscape has changed, what skills are required, the barriers to entry and how you build your networks

*Brighter Sound will bring guests involved in their Both Sides Now program whose aim is to support, inspire and showcase women in music and promote gender equality across the North of England.

Our regular “Meet The Experts” sessions will also return, where you can book a one-to-one meeting with music industry experts & professionals from a range of backgrounds.

The event takes place across Leeds College of Music and The Wardrobe in the city centre, is supported by Leeds Beckett University, Music:Leeds and PRS For Music Foundation and is free to attend.
