Win 2 x Industry Level Passes to Brighton Music Conference + New Novation Music Equipment

BMC comp banner

In only two weeks time, the most influential people on the global electronic music scene will descend in droves on our fair southern city of Brighton for an epic two-day conference over the 11th and 12th of April, to discuss and debate over every fascinating detail of the flourishing scene, to air new ideas and technology, teach and learn about the music business and network the bajaysus out of each other.

It’s the birth of what is sure to become an annual event, and if you’re uncertain if Brighton Music Conference has the pulling power of its global music conference predecessors, have a look at the dance industry companies that have thrown their weight behind the event. Panelists, speakers and sponsors are sourced from the executive echelons of Beatport, Spotify, Novation, BBC Radio 1, Spinnin’ Records, Native Instruments, PRS for Music, Funktion1, DJ Mag, Mixcloud and Resident Advisor.


What’s more, you’ll be hearing from the legendary dance music commentator Bill Brewster, co-author of the most famous book in dance music – Last Night A DJ Saved My Life, plus Q&As with artists Dave Clark, John 00 Fleming, Steve Mac, Orbital and a key interview with Eats Everything, who will be fielding questions from RA’s chief editor Ryan Keeling (and happens to be a hilarious dude). Yeah, we’re sold.

A business and education conference like this is not only invaluable to those working in the industry, but a fantastic learning opportunity for punters who are simply passionate and curious about the scene. Topics to be covered include The History of Electronic Music, The Future of Artist – Fan Connections, How to get an Agent, The Importance of Audio Quality and so many more.

This is electronic music of course and whilst we work hard, we play harder. With that in mind the city of Brighton will be hosting many a clubbing shindig across the weekend, to diffuse all that thinking we’ve been doing and remind us why we’re all here in the first place.
