As part of their work in the focus cities of Liverpool and Southampton for the third year of the project, the team at Future Bubblers are bringing their “Industry 101” day sessions to the cities through April. One of the principle objectives of Future Bubblers is to remove the barriers and restrictions that prevent or discourage many young emerging musical talents from pursuing a career, a profession in the world of music. Too often, a lack of knowledge or supportive networks mean that they are left confused and lacking confidence when it comes to navigating the “industry” of music.
The “Industry 101” days offer a free, day long introduction to the key topics that young artists have no choice but to confront even at the most grass root stages of their career. The team have assembled a small but extensively knowledgeable and experience selection of speakers to empower young artists in each city. The session will touch on:
*Record Deals & Contracts
* Live Touring
*Management & Booking Agents *Marketing & Promotion
*Music Publishing & Sync Licensing *Streaming & Distribution.
These sessions are intended as an entry level opportunity: no question is too “basic” or “stupid”. And the information provided is intended to be clear, jargon free, based on real life and current scenarios and actively encourages questions from the young people in the room. Spaces in the sessions are very limited so anyone who’s interested is encouraged to respond and sign up to the RSVP address asap [h firstname.lastname@example.org] .
The sessions are completely free. What’s the catch? All we ask is that attendees are able to commit to the entire day session [11am-5pm*], come eager to learn, ready to take advantage of the opportunity to engage directly with the industry, and a very short feedback survey at the end of it all.

About Future Bubblers:
Future Bubblers is a not-for-profit organisation supported by Arts Council England. We work with a small group of new, unsigned musical creatives each year, partnering them with industry mentors, helping them navigate the practical pitfalls of the music industry and supporting them in realising their vision. We also select two focus cities in England each year, partnering with likeminded local organisations to support the infrastructure outside London for promoting independent music.
