The Industry Takeover Seminar from Urban Development and CMU:DIY returns this week, with six monthly sessions now set to take place through to June at London’s Red Bull Studios.

The Industry Takeover Seminar is aimed at aspiring artists and future industry talent. Each edition focuses on a different aspect of the music business, and kicks off with a CMU:DIY guide to that side of the music industry. Then a panel of experts are questioned, first by CMU’s Chris Cooke, and then by the audience.

Says Cooke: “Urban Development’s Industry Takeover Seminar is one of my favourite events that we are involved in. Our CMU:DIY education programme is all about sharing our knowledge and insights with the next generation of artists and industry leaders, and each edition of the ITO Seminar is packed out with those very people”.

This week’s edition – tomorrow night (16 Jan) at the Red Bull Studios – is all about ‘Making Money From Music’ with input from Lloyd Murray from Relentless Records, Kate Bond from Evelyn Productions and Chris Oyekweli from Bravado.

Future sessions are focused on streaming, building a fanbase, making videos, gigging and label deals. For more info and tickets, click here.
