We're back at The Big Music Project this year with our stall and our Generation D.I.Y panel!

Generation D.I.Y
Powered by the Young Promoters Network

With the traditional music industry model in decline, an opportunity has arisen for people to break the mould and do it their way. This panel is designed to ask industry professionals about their journey and how they broke the mould. This panel session aims to offer a good dose of whole-hearted music tips, tricks & recommendations to raise the spirits of anyone who's doing it or wanting to get out there and do it. From musicians, budding promoters, technicians, media and anyone who is wanting to pursue their own adventure in the music industry.

Questions and topics can be emailed to or tweeted in using #BMPDIY for the panel to discuss in advance as well as taking questions from the room on the day. 

The Panel consists of

Louise Schofield – (Unique Lullaby/Radio Cardiff)
Martin Howell - (Fuel Rock Bar/Imperial Music Management)
Jess Campbell – (MCR Live/Xpress Radio)

Challenging perceptions of women in the music industry.
Powered by W.O.M.E.N

This session takes a look at the challenges facing women who are embarking upon a career within the music industry and the perceptions of what it means to be a woman in music.

W.O.M.E.N. take a look at the cultural impacts of gender stereotyping and how it influences the career decisions and choices available to women. Our panel of industry experts will provide insight to their own experiences and challenges over their careers and offer solutions of what we can do as individuals to support and nurture the next generation of empowered female professionals.
