Saturday at The Great Escape this year will be all about future talent once again, with a full day CMU:DIY programme for aspiring artists and songwriters, and young people interesting in working in music. There will be tips and advice galore in a packed programmed that will finale with Blur’s Dave Rowntree in conversation.

Along the way the CMU:DIY team and their guests will explain how the music industry works, how new artists can get their music online, on CD, and in front of key people, and what role label managers, promoters, publicists and music supervisors play.

Leading A&Rs will discuss how they discover new talent; the role music photography and video plays will be considered; and Blur’s Dave Rowntree will reveal how he finds new artists and new music to play on his weekly radio show on Xfm.

CMU:DIY @ The Great Escape is open to all TGE delegates, plus standalone tickets are available for the DIY programme at just £15 from this link. And you will find more information about the day here.
