Manchester’s new global music conference comes to Aviva Studios. Bag a delegate pass for two days of summits on the future of the music and content industry and more.

Beyond The Music returns this October after a successful launch in 2023. Attend the conference in its new location at Aviva Studios – then discover new music with a series of gigs across the Northern Quarter.

Beyond the Music will explore ongoing challenges in the music and content industry – from AI copyright threats and the pervasive culture of misogyny to a blocked talent pipeline and an unsustainable economic model. Join artists, business executives, innovators, politicians and thought leaders from a range of sectors to tackle these urgent global issues. Come together to find solutions, innovate and build an ambitious plan for the industry that champions human creative potential with a firm artist-first focus.

After the conference, head out into the city for a diverse line-up of gigs taking over the Northern Quarter. Discover the artists of the future in Manchester’s most exciting venues.

Delegate passes go on sale 10am on Thursday 28 March. To get early access from 9am on Thursday 28 March, sign up to the presale at beyondthemusic.co.uk
