For the first time Handmade will be introducing The Handmade Conference to the Friday preceding the Festival.
The Handmade team will be working with some of the festivals partners, including music rights organisation PPL - Phonographic Performance Ltd, to put together a programme of talks and discussions about the music industry and more. The day will be a valuable experience to young people, new bands and artists, those already pursuing a career in the industry, and anyone with an interest in taking a look behind the scenes.
Futher details of the programme will be released very soon. Entry is completely free but places will be on a first come first serve basis.
