ICMP is to host its first ever online Music Careers Festival in response to the coronavirus lockdown. 

Running as an online series from 4th-8th May, the event is organised by our Music Careers and Industry Hub and will see a host of leading music industry experts offering their advice and guidance on how to break-through in the music industry. 

ICMP students and alumni will have the opportunity to learn from industry professionals, expand their professional network, apply for jobs and equip themselves for career progression.

Professionals from Warners Music, Kobalt, Universal Music and more will all be appearing. 

James Brister, Industry Liaison Manager, said:  “We're very excited to be launching ICMP's first-ever online Music Careers Festival.

While the impact of the coronavirus pandemic means we all have to social distance, we remain fully committed in connecting our students and alumni with the music industry."

"This event will feature a wealth of advice, careers tips and 1-2-1 mentoring, demonstrating, not only our dedication to the ICMP community but our innovative approach to supporting them, no matter what."
