ppl coming to a town or city near you

In 2018, we attended, organised and hosted 160 events, 40% of which were outside of London.

Over the course of the year so far, we have taken our PPL in Session events to Newcastle, Glasgow, Birmingham and Bristol, and have participated and supported many music industry events and festivals. We were proud to support The Great Escape in Brighton, one of the most influential festivals for new and emerging artists, as well as Handmade Festival in Leicester, Liverpool Sound City, Output in Belfast, Focus Wales in Wrexham, Wide Days in Edinburgh and many more.

We have just returned from a second trip to Edinburgh where we supported the SAY (Scottish Album of the Year) Award in September. PPL was part of the judging panel, which helped select a shortlist of albums for this year’s edition, and award Auntie Flo, the overall winner, with a substantial cash prize. You may also have seen Peter Leathem’s opinion piece on the importance of the Scottish music industry in The Scotsman coinciding with the Awards.

Looking ahead to the rest of 2019, we are organising our member-focused PPL In Session events in Manchester, Liverpool, Cardiff and Belfast. These free PPL tutorials cover a variety of topics, allowing members to maximise their membership with tips and advice from our specialists.
