The inaugural Sound Industry conference took place on 30th March 2017 at Bristol's Colston Hall.
Organised by Bristol Women in Music, Sound Industry hosted some of the UK’s leading music industry professionals in a day-long program of thought-provoking panel discussions, workshops, and keynote speeches, as well as live performances and opportunities for networking. The conference program was curated to offer a platform for lively debate and fresh ideas to equip and challenge both men and women. In addition to examining the business side of careers in music, Sound Industry had a spotlight on the profession from a human perspective, covering broader issues of musical diversity, equality, wellbeing and politics.
We hope that Sound Industry will grow into an annual event and are already working on plans for 2018. Sign up to the Sound Industry mailing list to stay in the loop.
