Music:Leeds Launchpad Conference

Music:Leeds Launchpad Conference


For the last ten years, we have been involved in delivering the Unconference, the biggest free music industry event in the North.

In 2020, we're changing things - rebranding the event and moving it forward as Music:Leeds Launchpad Conference.

If you are involved in music at any level and hope to gain a better understanding of the music industries – as an artist, producer, manager, promoter, enthusiast or otherwise, you can come to our event to find out more from leading experts and professionals.

Expect the same format, more topics about the music industry, more personal and career development and more workshops - building on the success Music:Leeds Launchpad has had supporting artists with opportunities at Inner City Electronic, Black Music Festival, Live At Leeds, Jazz Leeds, Pub In The Park and more.

If you want to find out more about how our Launchpad program supports emerging artists and industry professionals check out: []

Speakers at Unconference events have included attendees from Spotify, PRS For Music, Kaiser Chiefs, BBC Radio 1, BBC 6 Music, Musicians Union, Metronomy, Coda Agency, Reading / Leeds Festival, Association of Independent Music, PRS Foundation, TuneCore, The Leaf Label, Arts Council England, Music Managers Forum, Help Musicians UK, Studio 12 & more

Entry is free to attend, but you need to register.
