Announcing the 2020 SoundCloud Creator Forum lineup: Toronto, London and more
As part of our commitment to give creators everywhere the tools they need to grow their careers, we’re taking the SoundCloud Creator Forum to five global cities in the next eight months. From Toronto to London, and key music moments like Sonar in Barcelona and A3C in Atlanta, we’ll be bringing creator resources to the core communities pushing culture forward all over the world.
First up: Toronto | February 19-21
Along with youth-led arts organization The Remix Project, we’re landing in The 6 with three days of panels, studio sessions, showcases and workshops (including rapper, producer and DJ Chippy Nonstop’s “Intersessions”).
Find out how to get started with an “SC101” workshop hosted by SoundCloud’s artist and label services team, and then hear from industry experts and homegrown artists on how to break out on a global level with the “Music Beyond Borders” panel. Once you’ve done some learning, you can put it to practice with interactive DJ workshops and studio sessions at The Remix Project. Members from Repost (the independent leader in distribution / music marketing and latest addition to the SoundCloud family) will be on site to answer all of your questions about how their personalized and premium label services can help you grow your career on your terms. And on day three, we’ll wrap everything up with a celebratory showcase featuring TOBi, Amaal Nuux, Jayd Ink, DJ ROSEGOLD and special guest anders, followed by the SoundCloud x Undisposable AfterParty.
Already in Toronto or booking your flights now that you know what’s going down? You can RSVP here now.
Next stop: AVA @ Printworks in London | March 13-14

SCCF resources for all
If you’re not in a city we’re planning on visiting this year, have no fear. We’re filming all of our panels so that wherever you are in the world, you can have a front-row seat to these events. In addition to the audio and video content, we’re going to be introducing “Expert Advice” – which is exactly what it sounds like. Guest posts featuring tips for you, straight from authorities in music, DJing, podcasting and more.
Check back this week because we’ll be kicking off our SCCF coverage with a fireside chat featuring music industry heavyweights Troy Carter, L.A. Reid, and SoundCloud’s Global Head of Music, Artist Relations and Label Services, Lisa Ellis. It’ll basically be like sitting down to lunch with the best in the business, except way more lowkey. Just put your earbuds in to pull up a seat.
