Annie Mac reveals further details for AMP London conference



SPEAKERS AND TOPICS CONFIRMED

ELLIE GOULDING, JAMIE OBORNE, OLLY ALEXANDER AND MORE

 

Britain’s premier music tastemaker Annie Mac has announced further details for this year’s AMP London Conference held on Friday 6th March at Camden House, with more names still to be announced. Buy tickets now from www.gigsandtours.com & https://www.anniemacpresents.com/london.

Attendees can expect an insight into today’s rapidly evolving industry through AMP’s conference as it aims to spotlight inspiring topics that will ignite conversations surrounding the landscape of the industry and highlight what’s going on behind the scenes that will shape the future. There is also the opportunity to ask questions and network with key music players throughout the day. On the conference day, Annie Mac explains:

“This music industry of ours is changing rapidly, artists are taking control of their careers. The independent path has proven viable and streaming has democratised the consumption process, making commercial success up for grabs to anyone who wants to give it a go. It’s a really exciting time.

There are still, however, huge sticking points for me; the conservatism when it comes to gender representation; the lack of diversity through the top tiers of the industry; the lack of systematic procedure to protect artists when it comes to mental health; and the urgent need for action on the industry’s contribution to the environmental crisis. Come and join us, there is still much to discuss!”
