Trying to break into the music industry? Mark your calendars for the daylong event that brings together industry leaders to inspire and empower young minds.

What does it take to thrive in the music industry in London? Excursions, organized by the Community Interest Company Route, aims to unite industry professionals, including representatives from the End Of The Road Festival, PR agencies, and Youth Music, to inspire and support budding talents in the English music scene. The event, scheduled for October 7th, will be a full day of live music, insightful industry talks, and engaging workshops, all designed to bridge the gap between young talents residing outside of London and the broader UK music industry.

The venue, Bedford Esquires, will be transformed into a hub of activity, with local and emerging artists performing in three separate live rooms. Think of artists like Connie Constance, Sam Akpro, Trout, Low Girl, The Itch, Balter, and more.
