London Electronic Music Event (LEME) at Bloc 2016
Since 2012, LEME has fostered a wide community of international artists, labels, manufacturers, media and industry professionals to explore the key issues in music business, technology and creativity.
Partnering for the first time with Bloc, LEME will take over the 200 capacity on-site cinema to deliver a two-day programme of panel discussions and one-on-one interviews featuring a mix of artists performing at Bloc – including Carl Craig, Daniel Miller and Jane Fitz – alongside speakers from the likes of The Guardian, Boiler Room, RA, The Wire and the Night Time Industry Association.
Designed to bridge the gap between the Bloc experience and the creative, technical and business processed behind it, LEME’s varied programme aims to deliver insight, facilitate conversation, spark inspiration and further connect artists and industry with the grassroots of electronic music culture.
Professional and Industry accreditation is available at Bloc 2016, for more details and to apply please visit: http://blocweekend.com/bloc-pro
