Brighton Music Conference (BMC), the UK’s foremost electronic music and networking event will host a panel on ‘United we Stream’ one of the founders in Berlin Lutz Leichsenring, Sacha Lord from the Manchester team, and Brighton’s very own Markus Saarlander. United We Stream is a movement that started during lockdown that has spread to over 83 cities around the world, live streaming to raise money to support the industry during the pandemic. The panel we discuss building a global community through live streaming, how it all started and what they hope to achieve next.
BMC will be the first music industry conference to take place in 2020, and uniting the electronic music industry to collaborate, inspire and find solutions to support businesses during the pandemic. Taking place from 1st to 2nd October, the award-winning event will return to the prestigious British Airways i360 venue on Brighton’s beachfront for its seventh edition with the addition of a new ‘online virtual pass’ to access the conference online in partnership with Beatport.
In order to comply with the new guidelines both venue & theatre capacity has been reduced accordingly and the team have been working hard to finalise the updated BMC programme to maintain the high level of panels and talks, with key industry speakers. The beachfront complex will host three theatres featuring in-depth discussions and debates on the biggest issues facing the electronic and wider music industry such as ‘the new normal’, diversity, mental health, streaming, the environment and current music and business trends. The Label Lounge A&R Sessions also returns for its second year at BMC, partnering with the Association of Independent Music.
