This year’s LIVE UK Summit, set for Wednesday 12 October, carries the banner Making It Happen, which encapsulates the character of the whole live music industry.

Whether it’s grassroots venues presenting unsigned artistes, a festival the size of a small town or multiple-night concerts at a stadium, all sectors of our industry – from promotion to production – have a motivation not present in many other walks of life.

Very many people in the live music business succeed or fail on their own efforts, and while the downside can be tough, that energy is what finds and develops new talent and takes it worldwide, builds ever more impressive stage sets and improves standards and services at venues.

We celebrate that energy at the Summit and, through discussion and networking, seek to improve and expand the outcomes it generates.

More than 300 delegates from across the live music industry – such as grassroots music promoters, venues operators, festival organisers, agents, artiste managers, services providers, industry organisations and politicians – will gather at this year’s event to discuss issues ranging from branding and artiste development to the challenges facing festivals and venues, ticket abuse and the evolving digital environment.

Conference panel information will be announced from early May.

The Summit is followed in the evening by the Live Music Business Awards, held at the same venue.  Check www.livemusicawards.co.uk
