Industry Takeover is aimed at equipping young people with the tools they need to navigate the music industry.
Since its launch in 2009, Industry Takeover has built a reputation for offering an unrivalled programme of professional development, entertainment, education and networking opportunities to hundreds of industry-minded hopefuls.
Think of our Industry Takeover events as a well-informed introduction to the music industry. Previous topics discussed at events range from the art of A&R and understanding music publishing to debate around the artistic merit of viral songs and whether to stay independent or sign to a major label.
Now regarded as one of the most informative career programmes within the wider music industry, whether you need to learn how to get paid from your music or to hear from professionals and artists about the highs and lows, we’re here to help you Takeover.
From April onwards, at our state of the art new east London home, Talent House, we’ll be unpacking the topics that will help you up your music business game.

“The inspirational Industry Takeover events bring relevant industry professionals face-to-face with young people aspiring to develop music industry careers.
