Urban Development’s Industry Takeover Seminar and Showcase is back and bigger than ever for 2012. Catch the likes of our very own Liam Tootill, along with urban music’s hottest artists and respected experts, speaking at the event which takes place this weekend in east London…
Offering edutainment and networking opportunities to industry-minded youth from across the UK, the initiative was launched by Urban Development in 2009 in East London. The annual event now attracts hundreds of young people each year, providing a unique platform whereby they can explore careers in all areas of the music industry and witness some of the UK’s hottest new names onstage.
The all day seminars and workshops are all about educating and informing future emcees, singers, DJs and young music industry professionals. Urban Development will be ‘taking over’ the multi-media arts complex in Bethnal Green, to bring the audience essential master classes, open mic sessions, a music market, street dance, vocal and music production workshops and of course performances from top names in the urban music industry.
Industry representatives from organisations including RWD, Universal Music, SB.TV (that’s us!), G-Shock and 1Xtra, will be sharing their expertise via the various workshops with home grown trailblazers including A*M*E, Elro, Shakka Joe Black, Jay Norton, Ayah Marar, Russo, SheZar, Incisive, UD Vocal Collective, Mango and Lashes and EMI signed Rascals (who had their start with Urban Development several years back) taking to the stage to perform throughout the day.
When: Saturday, October 27th – 12pm – 9pm.
Where: Rich Mix, 35-47 Bethnal Green Road, London, E1 6LA
