On the second day of Confetti industry week, students and aspiring musicians from all over Nottingham and beyond attended the Metronome where professionals spanning multiple sectors of the music industry, advised and guided those eager to get their foot in the door. The industry event contained a wide array of prospective musicians in many different genres.
In the audience sat others that worked in other parts of the industry such as videographers, marketers and more. A 15 minute session named ‘love spreading’ concluded the workshop, in which if you raised your hand you would get a microphone. You then had 30 seconds to state any needs, i.e, drummer, videographer, social media expert, etc.
When the workshop had finished, bands looking for new members or services could then introduce themselves to each other. Networking was encouraged and many that had never met before banded together and discussed potential projects and opportunities.
A range of pop up stands, ranging from labels to business advice were on hand to help bands accomplish their goals. Artists attended for a variety of objectives that varied from playing more gigs, to gaining airtime on the radio or adding missing pieces to the proverbial jigsaw.
In a world where the business of music can stump artists, this night was one where the industry in Nottingham came together in unison to celebrate the art and business of music.
