Take Note returns

Industry conference for beginners is back

Second edition of the conference will take place on 19 November

Last year saw the launch of a new dance music industry conference called Take Note. Unlike WMC, ADE or IMS, Take Note was aimed fair and square at those just starting out in the industry, rather than those that are already a part of it. And now, it's returning for a second year.

Taking place in the same location as last year - Shoreditch 'design space' Second Home - on 19 November, Take Note 2.0 will once again feature keynote speakers and panel discussions, with panelists including representatives from both indie and major labels, DJ agencies, radio stations and more. The full list of participants is:

B Traits - BBC Radio 1 DJ/presenter
Bill Brewster - DJ/author, Last Night A DJ Saved My Life, The Record Players and How To DJ Properly
Carly Wilford - DJ/presenter/creator, IAmMusic and SISTER
Danny Daze - Artist/founder, Omnidisc Records
David Sidley - DJ, AKA Whyt Noyz
Ed Karney - Founder of GRADE Management (Seth Troxler, Jackmaster)

The daytime event runs from 10am to 6pm, with an evening session from 6pm to 10pm. Tickets are available now, starting at £35 if you're quick enough to grab yourself an Early Bird special and rising to £60.
