LIVE UK is the only magazine dedicated to the UK's contemporary live music industry; providing news, features and information to 2,500 key professionals, including promoters, agents, festival organisers, venue operators, managers, record companies, media and hundreds of other service providers.
Sister publication to LIVE UK, AUDIENCE is the world's leading monthly magazine for the international contemporary live music industry, providing news, features and information to professionals in more than 78 countries worldwide. Circulation includes thousands of promoters, festival organisers, venue operators and key people in dozens of related sectors.
As the live music business continues to rapidly evolve and expand, this year’s LIVE UK Summit will focus on the entrepreneurs taking the industry to the next level, as well as featuring more keynote speakers, conference panels, forums, Q&As, new media demos and expanded networking opportunities.
Summit sessions will review and discuss the latest advances in live music-related technology – ranging from social marketing and mobile ticketing to concert streaming and production – with innovation a key theme throughout running through the event.
Meanwhile, traditional Summit panels on such issues as brand involvement, media activity and the NXT Sessions – focussed on the unsigned and emerging artiste sector – will return in a refreshed format.
Last year’s debut of The Music Chamber session, in which politicians Lord Clement Jones and Mike Weatherley MP had a roundtable discussion with industry veterans such as Harvey Goldsmith, Stuart Galbraith and Martin Elbourne – surrounded by conference delegates – proved especially popular and will be expanded and enhanced.
More delegate interaction with conference speakers and guests will be encouraged and the programme will include new forum sessions and Q&As.
The first details of this year’s Summit content will be announced in late-June, followed by regular updates.
