It also showcases what you can expect from being at BIMM, where you learn that the music industry is yours and ready for shaping. There’s never been a better time to make your mark, make a difference, and make some noise.

Each day focuses on a different theme and features exclusive input from industry figures and panels. Let’s take a look at our Summer Series itinerary:

It Begins with a Song

Tuesday, 3rd August, 3 pm (CET)

The first day of Summer Series looks at everything you need to know about songwriting. You’ll join our exclusive Masterclass with an expert panel comprising an artist, writer, publisher, and lawyer.

Together, our panel will provide an in-depth analysis of what each department contributes to the songwriting process. You will learn about the development and timeline: how a song can begin as a demo or idea and build into a commercially successful soundtrack.



Public Image Unlimited

Wednesday, 4th August, 3 pm (CET)

Here, we look at creative campaigns for musicians. You’ll join our workshop that talks through the creative decisions that go into developing a successful campaign for musicians and artists – from mood boards through to the final publicity campaign.
