London Music Conference launches accelerator program for aspiring artists and industry talent28 November 2019 - Press release
The all encompassing London Music Conference today launches its exciting Accelerator Program is a way to help drive artists and labels forwards. Taking place January 30th - February 1st with a long list of world class insiders, industry experts and big brands all hosting talks, panels, workshops, demos and much more, LMC20 plays out across a wide range of venues in Central and East London, with the primary conference activity happening at fabric London.
Brand new for this year is the Accelerator Program for artists and labels, a bold concept that offers a brand new and technology-powered platform to nurture young talents and help them supercharge their careers. The Accelerator Program provides an array of opportunities for artists to engage with top A&Rs, play shows, build key relationships, get music released on one of the LMC partner labels, or play a set in the main room of hallowed London club fabric, and it is open to any serious electronic music artist from anywhere in the world.
After artists pitch directly to 30 of the world's best indie labels (including the likes of Axwell's Axtone imprint) for the chance to win comprehensive marketing and PR support, the Top 50 ranked artists will be highlighted as part of a focussed PR Campaign. From there, a special cohort of judges will pick the final five winning artists and announce them at the LMC Awards ceremony at fabric on January 30. Winners will receive a comprehensive PR and media campaign via Red Bull Radio, Mixmag and Jukebox PR and get their music released with distribution, rights admin, promo and much more all included. An array of performance opportunities across the conference will also be available to the final 50, making this an invaluable opportunity for artists to really take their career to the next level.
As well as networking events at fabric as part of the LMC Exhibition, recognised brands like Point Blank Music School, Boiler Room, Red Bull Radio, Beatport, Korg and VRJAM and many more will all be involved in the diverse and immersive offerings across the conference, as will high-level individuals for the panel discussions such as Nemone from BBC 6 Music, Jaguar from BBC Radio 1 / BBC Introducing, DJ Mag Digital Tech Editor Declan McGlynn, Mixmag Editor Duncan Dick, DAZED Head of Digital & Audience Charlotte Lucy Cijffers, artists Scuba and Ben Pearce, Sarah Story from Capital FM, Steven Braines of He.She.They, Firas Waez of Waze & Odyssey, Jazmine Azarian from MOTZ, Third Son, Third Son, Mark Newton from promotional company Broadwick Live, Alex Warren of Crossbreed, Ranen Ekubia from London club Printworks, Alex Jukes of The Festival Travel Shop and Jukebox PR, and more.
