This weekend, SoundCloud was out in full force at the first annual BBC Music Introducing Hosts Amplify event at London’s ExCel center. The conference brought together the UK’s largest gathering of creators in the UK with more than 15,000 tickets sold, and gave up and coming singer/songwriters, bands, DJs, producers and industry experts the opportunity to come together to network, learn and talk more about how to get your music heard, how to grow your fanbase, play more gigs and find success.
SoundCloud kicked off the weekend with a panel event, “The Creator Class: Finding and growing your fanbase in the streaming age,” featuring top independent artists Jay Prince and Oshi, along with SoundCloud Artist Relations Director, Joe Armenia and artist managers Steven Braines and Alessandro Moro (aka Moz). Opening up with networking cocktails and a few words from SoundCloud’s new Chief Executive Officer Kerry Trainor, the panel discussion explored how artists today are building, growing and connecting with their fanbases and other artists in a time where we’re more connected than ever. The panel concluded with special performances from Jay Prince and Oshi.
Throughout the weekend, SoundCloud was on-site to meet creators on the platform, answer questions and help anyone who had questions or wanted to learn how to get started. If you missed it, you can check out photos from the event below.
Until next year!
