Delivered by some of the industry’s leading figures and in conjunction with BMC’s Education Partners – including YouTube, Facebook, Ableton, Native Instruments, Audio Technica, Novation, Sennheiser, BIMM, Point Blank, PRS, PPL and more, the extensively grown Academy programme which aims at aspiring artists, DJs, entrepreneurs, promoters, managers and engineers will welcome hosts and panellists from YouTube, Beatport, JFB, Ableton, The Hydra, Hypercolour, Anjunabeats, PRS, Hospital, Rebekah, Loopmasters, and many more. Terry Weerasinghe, Vice President of Music Services at Beatport will be running a Q&A session giving delegates the opportunity to ask questions from the floor.
Meanwhile, new Professional hosts and panellists include Kobalt, Defected Records, Coda, Resident Advisor, Back To Basics, Native Instruments, and Involved management. These will join speakers and brands including YouTube, Beatport, Dave Clarke, Rhys Hughes (BBC Radio 1/BBC 1Xtra), Ableton, AFEM, Native Instruments, Hospital Records, JFB, Icicle, X-Press 2, Mobilee, DJ Magazine, and many more.

Visitors to BMC Academy will be able to check out Live 9 and Push in the company of Ableton Certified Trainers and get creative insights and inspiration from artists via a series of workshops and panels.
Panel topics for this year span the music industry, including the latest developments in streaming, publishing (and monetisation), live, digital broadcasting, legal, synching, social media, the DIY route (for artists and labels), Ibiza, and beyond.
