Toby L, Transgressive Records Co-Founder commented, "The inaugural BBC Introducing Music LIVE event was one of the most inspiring, enriching and fulfilling gatherings we've had the pleasure to partake in. Every genre, sensibility and background was taken into consideration, combining to produce an inclusive and practical inside track to one of the most opaque and complex businesses on the planet. Whether you're an artist, a burgeoning music mogul, or someone that's simply curious to learn more about the inner machinations of the music industry, it's an absolute must-attend."
Plus, there will be even more opportunities for musicians to perform at BBC Music Introducing LIVE in 2019, with details on how to get involved released soon.
