Brighton Music Conference (BMC), the UK’s foremost electronic music and networking event will still be going ahead on Thurs 1 – Fri 2 Oct but as a virtual only event, streamed live and on-demand. Unfortunately, the physical conference can no longer take place as planned due to new Government restrictions.
In partnership with Beatport, the virtual pass will give access to the panel discussions, Q&As, workshops, tutorials and DJ sets as well as exclusive footage. It will be streamed live and on-demand and feature artists including; Carl, Cox, Danny Howard, Darrius Syrossion, DJ Rap, DJ Paulette, East End Dubs, Fatboy Slim, Jaguar, Hannah Wants, Hariet Jaxxon, Josh Butler, Krafty Kuts, Sister Bliss (Faithless), Stanton Warriors, SUAT, Waze & Odyssey and many more.
BMC is committed to uniting the electronic music industry to collaborate, inspire and find solutions to support businesses during the pandemic with all content being live-streamed from the prestigious British Airways i360 venue on Brighton’s beachfront for its seventh edition.
“To say the team here at BMC are totally gutted after we got the news on Monday about the new restrictions would be an understatement to say the least,” says BMC found Billy Mauseth. “This will be the third time we have changed the event line up, so we are hoping it will be third time lucky, it’s been a tough few days! We are still committed to delivering a great conference program with some of the biggest names in the industry despite all the hurdles we have had to overcome over the last 6 months.”
