Organised by Bristol Women in Music, Sound Industry 2017 hosted some of the UK’s leading music industry professionals in a day-long program of thought-provoking panel discussions, workshops, and keynote speeches, as well as live performances and opportunities for networking. Too often, the music industry as a whole can feel like it is directed at - and run by - a very narrow demographic of people; Sound Industry’s mission was to represent something more diverse. The conference program was curated to offer a platform for lively debate and fresh ideas to equip and challenge both men and women. In addition to examining the business side of careers in music, Sound Industry had a spotlight on the profession from a human perspective, covering broader issues of musical diversity, equality, wellbeing and politics.
