Un-convention is a new music industry event.


It’s about being independent.


It’s about facing up to the current changing music scene and looking for innovative and creative solutions.


It’s about discussion, debate and most of all – meeting new people with different perspectives and sharing knowledge, experience and contacts.


Un-convention aims to be interactive and inspirational. It will begin with participants contributing to the online blog with their questions and ideas for the four panel areas – label; live; exposure; and innovation. The event will be organic and will be led by the participants as much as  the panel guests.


Un-convention brings together some of the most exciting voices in the music industry such as Huw Stephens (Radio One), Andrew Dubber (New Music Strategies), Dave Cooper (In House Press), Mike McNally (McNally Consulting)….


Un-convention is organised by a collective of DIY and independent labels, promoters and bands for people in similar roles and organisations.


This year, Un-convention will take place in Salford on the 5th, 6th and 7th October.

Un-convention will run over three evenings, and two days, in the unique setting of the Saint Trinity Church, just off Deansgate, a stones throw from Manchester city centre.
For the event, the Church will be transformed, with staging, lighting, and a full PA being installed especially for the occassion. There will also be a bar, thank god!
It will start on the Sunday evening with showcase performances from four bands, at the cutting edge of new music. Doors will be at 7pm.
Monday will see the first day of the conference, which will run from noon until 6pm, and include panels, networking and acoustic performances. On the evening the church will revert to a music venue for another four showcase performances.
Tuesday will follow the same format, again with discussions and networking through out the day, and bands on the evening.
