Early bird tickets for the eighth edition of the conference are on sale now
With the UK's coronavirus vaccination programme going more-or-less according to plan, the signs of dance music industry recovery are everywhere – if only in the form of festivals selling tickets and announcing line-ups for events that, putatively, could still not happen. But that's okay – we can surely all use some optimism and something to look forward to right now!
So here's some more good news: after being, inevitably, cancelled-cos-COVID in 2020, Brighton Music Conference is set to return on 22-24 September.
There's not a huge amount we can actually tell you about it just yet, admittedly. The line-up of panels, workshops, keynote speeches and yada yada yada is still TBA, as are details of the night-time events that accompany the daytime networking. What we do know is that any unrefunded tickets for the 2020 conference will be valid for this one, that the Association of Independent Music will definitely be there hosting their A&R Lounge sessions, and that a percentage of proceeds from ticket sales will go to help the charities Last Night A DJ Saved My Life and Help Musicians UK.
Early bird tickets went on sale yesterday, as did 99 special Golden Tickets, which give you the same access as a BMC Pro pass (normally £155) for just £99.
