Handmade Festival have announced that this years two day music event will be preceded by a one-day conference exploring the music industry.

The Handmade team will be working with some of the festival’s partners, including music rights organisation PPL, to bring a programme of talks and discussions about the music industry and more to the city’s Hansom Hall venue. The day intends to be a valuable experience to young people, new bands and artists, those already pursuing a career in the industry, and anyone with an interest in taking a look behind the scenes.

Further details of the programme for the day will be announced soon.

Conference tickets are free and you can register for your place here.
