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.
We look back at the 2022 Programme…
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.

“The inspirational Industry Takeover events bring relevant industry professionals face-to-face with young people aspiring to develop music industry careers. Universal Music UK has worked with UD for a few years, providing volunteer speakers for panels and one-to-one sessions… it is a fantastic resource and we would be delighted to continue supporting their work.”
