More CMU at Liverpool Sound City 2010

By | Published on Tuesday 18 May 2010

Back to Liverpool, and yesterday we revealed the line-up for the CMU panel at this year’s Liverpool Sound City, which takes place on Thursday morning at the Liverpool Hilton. But that’s not the only CMU event taking place at LSC this year, oh no.

Tomorrow morning CMU will take part in Create Sound City, an exciting new strand to Sound City this year which offers aspiring music people with a load of practical advice and information, all at the Hard Day’s Night Hotel. CMU Publisher Chris Cooke will run three sessions starting at 10am tomorrow.

The first (at 10am) will look at how unsigned bands can connect with, engage and sell to fans, and create media and label interest. The second (at 11am) will look at how you can make money out of music in 2010, and offer advice to music entrepreneurs hoping to run the successful music companies of the future. The third (at midday) will offer tips on getting a job in the music business.

Meanwhile, on Friday, CMU will be at the Liverpool Sound City technology conference. Chris will be leading a discussion on new digital services and business models at 10am, and then contributing to a panel on the future of digital licensing at 11am. Both look likely to be brilliant events.

And, of course, the CMU workshops and panels are just the tip of the iceberg at Liverpool Sound City this year, for full details on all of this year’s panels and showcases check For some band tips, check out some recommendations from Peter Guy from Liverpool music blog GetIntoThis in the form of a CMU Powers Of Ten playlist:
