“Music for Youth are really supportive of unsigned acts like me and they do lots of events where aspiring artists can perform like Frequencies. It was an exceptional experience; one I’ll never forget.” Nicole, Young Participant
Music for Youth teamed up with Universal who led a Utalk featuring A&R and marketing professionals from Universal Music, Virgin EMI and Polydor Records. The sessions focussed on routes into the music industry with insights into what scouts and record companies look for in emerging artists.

To round off the day, groups performed to a live crowd including industry professionals who gave each artist feedback and tips for development.
