The 10th anniversary edition will focus on the importance of communities with Bristol Night Time Economy Advisor, Carly Heath summing it up perfectly in her talk last year stating that “Nightlife is where communities happen”. BMC 2023 will once again present a full programme of panels, Q&A’s, workshops and networking events which will take place over three days from 24th to 26th May 2023. It’s the perfect summer warm up event for industry professionals and music lovers alike. More info on speakers, artists, panel topics and networking events coming soon.

The concept for the event came from the idea that the UK is a world leader when it comes to electronic music, but didn’t have its own electronic music industry conference and so in 2014 BMC was born. Starting life at the Brighton Dome the conference has grown into the leading event for electronic music in the UK and provides a platform for artists, DJs, producers, record label executives, and other industry experts to share their knowledge, network and explore new business opportunities. The annual event features panel discussions, workshops and keynotes from renowned figures in the music industry, covering a wide range of topics including marketing, production, streaming, social media, mental health and the latest industry trends. Networking is also a big part of the BMC ethos and there are plenty of opportunities to meet industry colleagues and connect with like-minded people at the many exclusive networking parties at some of Brighton’s best-loved venues.
