AMP London Conference lineup announced.

Britain’s premier music tastemaker Annie Mac announces full details of the AMP LONDON Conference Days, held from 12 noon to 6pm at Moth Club in Hackney on Friday 29th March for ‘The Industry’day and Saturday 30th March for ‘The Next Generation’ day.

Encompassing debate and discussion around the future and evolution of today’s music artists and industry, the AMP LONDON Conference Days aim to provide a welcoming hub for all those engaged and interested in music, inspire conversations about how the landscape of the business is changing, and highlight what’s going on behind the scenes that will shape the future.

Annie Mac says: “The AMP Conference Days are a really exciting development within our AMP brand. After spending the last 15 years curating music both recorded and live, to be able to curate discussions has been so fascinating. I wanted to create discussions that I really wanted to hear, involving voices that I really want to hear from. The themes are all subjects I was personally keen to explore, and we have meticulously chosen people in the industry who we think will bring a unique perspective to those discussions. I love that the conference will take place at Moth Club, which is essentially an old working man’s club, with big booths and a bar. It makes for a more informal, fun atmosphere.”

The first conference day on Friday 29th March will be dedicated to current discussions within ‘The Industry’, in partnership with Music Week, the leading weekly magazine for the UK music industry. Each conversation will be introduced by Annie, who will explain why she feels it’s important to highlight. Topics addressed by leading industry figures on the day will include:

Artists featuring on these shows include: Sam Fender, Mahalia, Theophilus London, Amyl & The Sniffers, Rina Sawayama and Puma Blue alongside Jimothy Lacoste, Koffee, Kojey Radical and Annie Mac herself. AMP LONDON also boasts the (already sold out) Printworks rave, in addition to an Oval Space take-over featuring Two Door Cinema Club and Circa Waves and a closing party at The Hackney Empire (proceeds from which will be donated to London based charity, Art Against Knives).

AMP LONDON will prove a vital music event for 2019. Tickets for the AMP LONDON live shows are available here: Entry to AMP LONDON Conference, will be via free signs, so arrive early to avoid disappointment.
