The Takeover Online Music Conference For Independent Artists | Music Think Tank

Back in May, Right Chord Music launched The Takeover, an online music festival championing incredible independent artists. The Festival showcased 49 artists, from 11 different countries playing live on Facebook. The Festival presented by BOSE generated over 600,000 video views and raised over £4,000 for Nordoff Robbins music therapy.   

Now The Takeover returns as an online music conference.  It’s the first online music conference designed specifically to support the challenges faced by unsigned artists. Tickets on sale now via DICE

Right Chord Music Founder, Mark Knight explains. “In my experience, even music conferences which say they support unsigned artists don’t really cater to their needs. Tickets costs are high and all you hear is major record label execs talking about their big budget campaigns and success with radio, live, and John Lewis TV sync deals. Unsigned artists leave feeling frustrated because none of this is in their grasp or relevant to their realities.”

In response to this problem, Right Chord Music have created a conference that gives unsigned and independent artists the inspiration, skills and practical tools to further their careers now.

The Takeover Conference takes place throughout October. Whereas physical conferences often cram as many talks as they can into one or two days The Takeover will run one session a day, so you don’t miss a thing. The conference will run via Zoom Call, bringing together content creators and marketing experts to provide practical workshops and support for independent artists.

Every workshop at The Takeover Conference is designed to provide practical, relevant skills for the modern day unsigned, independent and self released artist. At The Takeover Conference you’ll learn how to:

  • Grow an online audience with Feed 

  • Get press without PR with Musosoup 

  • Plan to promote music with Major Labl

  • Win on streaming music services with EmuBands 

  • Make music videos with The RedRed video

  • Befriend a music blog with Right Chord Music

  • Create a brand for your band with Bannersnack 

  • Produce music holistically with Magic Garden Studios 

  • Get gigs and build an audience with Twisterella 

  • Get your music played on radio with Chris Hawkins (BBC Radio 6 Music) 

  • Release, promote and monetise your music with CD Baby 

  • Promote music on TikTok 

Tickets for The Takeover Conference can be purchased via DICE directly via this link or via The Takeover Conference website.
