The event provides a great opportunity for students, staff and members of the public to meet and network with a host of industry professionals, including producers and engineers.

There will be lively and relevant panel discussions as well as masterclasses with industry professionals.

Music technology retailers and distributors including Focusrite, avid (Protools), sound technology, KMR, GAK and MU will have stands in our exhibition space showcasing great gear and instruments for you to explore.

We will also be reprising our ‘modular cave’ full of all things synth and twiddly!
