The Mayor’ of London’s Busk in London programme has teamed up with Wembley Park to run the first Academy Day for young musicians. Linked to the successful Gigs busking competition, the Academy will offer training and professional experience to amateur performers, those who are at industry entry level as well as budding musicians who want to make their way in the business.

The academy training includes sessions on stage craft, set lists, as well as more practical advice on things such as choosing equipment and building a crowd. There’ll also be an introduction to the ever changing world that is the music industry and how to navigate it.

Sessions are run by industry professionals, and the day will end with a Q+A where you can ask any question you might have and find out more about getting ahead in the Gigs competition.
