Supporting and developing local, homegrown Merseyside talent has always been key in LIMF's mission statement, and the partnership with BBC 1Xtra highlights this dedication. The Music Biz 101 Masterclass is an annual event that is a prime example of this commitment. Taking place on 1st October the award-winning LIMF Academy will present the masterclass that allows emerging music talent to find out everything they need to know about the music industry but didn’t know who to ask, from getting heard to getting paid, from how to source funding to how to be a successful independent artist.
The LIMF Academy Masterclass features some leading lights in the UK Music Industry including Chris Price(Head of Music at BBC Radio 1 & 1Xtra), A.Dot (Presenter and A&R), Steve Levine (Grammy Award Winning Music Producer), Chart topping producer/artist SG Lewis and Universal Music Publishings’ Dani Sawyer, alongside local music leaders such as Dave Monks (BBC Merseyside), Becky Ayres (Liverpool Sound City), Sam Turner (Bido Lito!) and Peter Guy (GetIntoThis). The LIMF Academy Masterclass will also feature contributions from prominent national partners such UK Music, PRS for Music Foundation, Musician’s Union, Ditto Music and Help Musicians. The event will take place at Constellations with applicants able to get free tickets from www.skiddle.com. Places are limited and are on a first come first served basis, available to 16-25 year old artists, bands and DJ/producers.
Yaw Owusu, LIMF Curator says, “This is the best way for new music talent on Merseyside to learn more about the industry and network with key professionals. Year on year, the LIMF Academy strives to improve the impact for all the attendees and we believe that this year’s edition will build greatly on our previous success.”
