When you’re just trying to make it and break into a highly competitive arena such as the electronic music and DJ scene, you need to do more than just make great music or perform great DJ sets. If you really want to be successful you need to go to the right places and attend the right events.
R&K will be performing at the DJ Growth Lab as part of the Brighton Music Conference. Most people involved in the UK electronic dance music and DJ scene are familiar with this great event. However, if you are new to the whole thing, let’s give you the lowdown on what it’s all about and why we are excited to be a part of it. This is where you want to be during April if you are a budding electronic dance music producer, performer or DJ who is looking to learn more about the business.
When is the Brighton Music Conference and Where is it being Held?
Being held from the 24thto the 27thof April this year, the Brighton Music Festival is the biggest event of its kind and it is now in its 6thyear. A big change to the event this year is the fact that it will be held from the amazing Brighton i360 Complex. Whereas previous years it was held at the Brighton Dome, the British Airways-owned i360 is the tallest ascending observation tower and is located nearby the West Pier of the glorious Brighton Seafront.
So, what’s it all about?
The conference features appearances from important and renowned speakers and delegates from the electronic music industry. Over the four days, there will be more than 180 speakers, 60 different talks, a series of interesting seminars and workshops, as well as networking events where attendees have the chance to expand their business, make contacts and meet the right people. As it is a music event, there will also be highly exclusive and exciting club events held across those four days.
In addition to the above, the conference also features a specially-dedicated exhibition hall area that will feature the electronic dance music scene’s leading and best service providers, technology companies and suppliers.
What Can You Learn?
There are lots of interesting topics up for debate and discussed across the four days of seminars, workshops and discussions. Rather than just being about beat-making or hook writing, the conference covers all the nitty-gritty about the business. This includes how to get paid for DJing, working with guest and featured artists and even some interesting debates about modern changes to the industry and how different things have an impact and affect it.
Basically, if you are looking to learn more about the dance music scene and how to make it in the industry, you need to attend the Brighton Music Conference. There’s a reason why it is highly-regarded as an important event in the musical calendar. It attracts many of the biggest names in the business such as David Morales, Brandon Block and Danny Rampling to name but a few.
