Anyone keen to learn just where the music business might be going should pop along to Whitla Hall in Belfast next Thursday.

While NI Music: The Way Forward is aimed primarily at Northern Ireland musicians, the all-day conference will probably contain a bundle of universal truths about the current state of the industry.

Organised by the Northern Ireland Music Industry Commission, the conference will feature such speakers as Paul Brannigan (Kerrang), Una Johnson (South By Southwest), Harry Martin (Domino Records), Declan Forde (POD Concerts), Iain Ramage (Sony ATV Music), Ben Turner (Bestival) and UK Music boss Feargal Sharkey.

Admission is free and more information on the event can be found here.
