This year, the ICMP is pleased to announce that it will be sending students to Sound City Festival in Liverpool and The Great Escape in Brighton. Students Nina Rubesa, Rebekah Hesse, Ellie Best and Cara Carter will be attending these events as part of their Music Business course this year.
These events will give the students first-hand experience of the inner workings of a festival, and they'll get the chance to go behind the scenes at shows featuring acts like Pete Doherty, Shura, and Stormzy. They will also be seeing ICMP acts including Victoria and HAUS. Whilst there, they will conduct interviews and attend 'In Conversation' talks with some of the music industry's best publishers, managers and A&R representatives.
The students will be creating a documentary of all their meetings and interviews, and their personal experiences of the weekend as a whole as part of the project. They will also be providing social media updates as the festivals progress, so watch this space!
