Music conferences have become a big thing over the past few years. Making music doesn’t make much money, but someone somewhere has worked out that talking about is a potential money raker. Hence why Brighton Music Conference – possibly not quite as glamorous as Miami, but definitely more glamorous than Blackpool – was born.
This year’s event is due to take place between the 22nd and 24th of September. You’re more than welcome to have a gander around their site, but you won’t see much – other than tickets which cost over £100. The general tickets seem to have sold out a long time ago.
I have little doubt the appeal of being able to do an in-person event once again after the online version last year has helped sell those tickets – but I do have one criticism to make. When you click through on the programme section of their website, it just tells you it’s coming soon.
Am I the only one who thinks that’s a bit of a cop out? No one is expecting them to have all the dates and times of exactly where everyone will be a full seven weeks in advance. But a little bit of information would be helpful. Literally all we currently know is that Carl Cox, Sherelle and Judge Jules will be there.
There’s nothing else. Is Judge Jules there to do a set? Is he there to talk about his long career in music? Is he there to juggle chainsaws and fluffy kittens? We simply don’t know. Give us a clue…
