Brighton Music Conference – http://www.brightonmusicconference.co.uk/

This is our third year at Brighton Music Conference and it just keeps getting bigger and better. If you’re involved in the world of electronic music we highly recommend the event for its panels, product demos and networking opportunities.

Our CEO Ben Rush spoke on two discussion panels at the event; Stealing Their Own Success. Are DJs Accidentally Killing Sales? And Fighting Piracy In Dance Music.

It is very encouraging for us to see how the industry at large is taking a positive attitude to tackling piracy and that organisation such as the AFEM strive to give their members access to the best solutions and advice.

 Music Connected - http://www.musicindie.com/events/aim/2016/04/27/1201

Music Connected is another event that is a permanent fixture in the AudioLock calendar. As usual we were had a stand decked out in our white, blue and black livery in the ‘digital marketplace’ alongside numerous other digital services relating to the music industry. It’s great for us to have a chance to catch up with current clients, partners and to give advice on music anti-piracy best practice.

From SXSW to Brighton Music Conference and Music Connected

Recently back from a successful visit to SXSW, this month AudioLock will be attending two key industry events; The Brighton Music Conference and AIM’s Music Connected.


2016 was AudioLock’s first visit to the legendary music conference that is SXSW. 30 years on and the Texas conference has developed into one of the world’s biggest events for the music industry with delegates flying in from over 50 countries and representing every genre. AudioLock made the trip in a bid to catch up with AudioLock’s US clients and cultivate new business from the international market.
