The Elevate Programme at The Great Escape

By | Published on Thursday 6 April 2023


The Elevate Programme is back at this year’s Great Escape. This is the professional development programme for early-career music business executives and entrepreneurs, and aspiring music-makers, presented by The Great Escape and CMU, and supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.

As part of this programme, each year we invite a team of Super Delegates to attend TGE. These delegates then gain access to a subsidised and curated TGE conference experience.

With a particular focus on helping people from non-traditional backgrounds thrive in the music business, 40 super delegates will take part this year nominated by organisations across the industry.

Additionally, we will once again present the Elevate Sessions, a full-day strand in the TGE Conference featuring panels, interviews and workshops that address the challenges and needs of early-stage artists, industry practitioners and music entrepreneurs.

This strand is open to all TGE delegates plus – thanks to the support of Arts Council England – free tickets are made available to students from colleges across the South East.

Keep an eye on the CMU Daily for more information about this year’s Elevate Programme ahead of The Great Escape, which takes place from 10-13 May in Brighton.
