Returning to the British Airways i360 venue on Brighton's beachfront from 22nd to 24th September, this year's event will feature an insightful programme of talks, seminars and workshops focusing on inspiration and collaboration, rebuilding and rethinking to create a stronger and brighter future for everyone in the electronic and wider music

BMC Founder and CEO BIlly Mauseth says:

"We are really excited to be welcoming people back to our event in person to celebrate our industry and culture. 

"We worked really hard to put together a digital event during the pandemic last year, so we could still offer support to people in our industry but you can't beat the in person experience to network, learn and be inspired.
"We are also committed to helping the next generation of DJs, producers, artists and business leaders and during the three days we'll be running a dedicated educational program to help cultivate and inspire students and young people wanting to get into the music industry."
