As cliché as it may sound, being part of the music industry is not for the faint hearted. It entails long hours, perseverance and relentlessly keeping yourself relevant.
Doing this means attending gigs and networking events, whether you’re feeling like the friendliest person on this earth that day or not. As we’ve constantly been reminded throughout lectures at BIMM, the relationships you build are what will sustain your career throughout the years.
There are two upcoming events which present a great opportunity to do the above, so if you haven’t already, get your diaries out and take note.
