BBC MUSIC Introducing Live has announced a wave of brand workshops for the autumn event at London’s Tobacco Dock.

The 31 October–2 November event, which comprises panels, master-classes and networking sessions, will include news features such as  Tell Us How It Is, an open forum in which attendees can discuss their experiences and ideas.

BBC presenters including BBC Radio 2’s Jo Whiley, BBC Radio 6 Music’s Tom Robinson and BBC Radio 1’s Huw Stephens will host the event.

“Not only does [the event] provide practical information, but it brings creative newcomers and professionals together to talk about their futures,” says Stephens.

“Last year at Tobacco Dock something really special happened, and after a decade of BBC Introducing it felt like the start of a new chapter. The experts on the panel, the partnerships & the eager musicians made it a really memorable event.”

There will be live broadcasts from a purpose-built studio at BBC Music Introducing Live going out on BBC stations across the three days.

Other sessions  include What Does It Take To Start Out In A&R, Meet The Artist Managers and How Do You Get a Job As A Music Promoter.

Last year, there were surprise performances from the likes of Clean Bandit, Tom Grennan, David Gray and Declan McKenna, along with concerts from Ben Howard and Deadmau5. This year’s performances are yet to be announced.

Limited early-bird three-day tickets are available at £25 + booking fee.
