In The City extravaganza

THE UK’s premier music conference is all set to return – with a brand new location.

In The City has been a significant stepping stone in the careers of greats like Oasis, Radiohead and Foo Fighters and is regarded as the place to see all the hottest new names.

This year the urban festival finds its home at the heartland of Manchester’s cultrual landascape, Piccadilly and Northern Quarter.

In The City is not just about the live side though but also the conference, which is where movers and shakers debate the future of the industry.

Operating under this year’s overall theme “That That Don’t Kill Me Can Only Make Me Stronger” it provides a vital forum via keynote addresses, celebrity interviews, masterclasses, panels and seminars.
