The LMC Accelerator Program is a community platform that offers rising electronic music artists and producers a wide range of valuable opportunities to supercharge their careers by gaining access to next level solutions to reach new audiences, connect with labels and explore the music technology space so that they can expand, enrich and extend their careers.

The LMC Accelerator empowers artists to engage with top A&R professionals, play shows, build relationships with brands and secure and confirm releases on a hand picked selection of partnered labels including
Axwell's Axtone imprint.

The opportunity to participate in the Accelerator program is available to any serious electronic music artist from anywhere in the world and aims to foster the creation of amazing new music on a global scale.

The LMC Accelerator is an ongoing, year round program presented in partnership with a community of profile brand partners who contribute to program content including Label Worx
, Native Instruments, Arturia and Yamaha.

RELEASE

London Music Conference offers Accelerator participants the opportunity to pitch their music directly to a hand-picked selection of the world’s best indie labels.

Participating artists subscribe to our community platform by joining the platform as an Artist, click here to subscribe.

Labels are then given the opportunity to make offers for any record(s) that they want to release with a comprehensive marketing and PR solution provided by LMC to help power releases.

Each year in February, 5 winning artists will receive a supported single release via one of our partnered labels, with a comprehensive promotional and marketing package provided by LMC partners to support each release.

PROMOTE

The top 50 highest ranked artists (the LMC50) will be highlighted as part of a focused PR campaign in an effort to promote their music and generate interest from new fans and journalists.

In February each year we will select 5 winning artists who represent the best track submissions received through the program each year.

LMC’s Media partners will provide a range of free of charge marketing, PR, distribution, rights admin and promotion to support the release of a single via one of our partnered labels for each of our 5 winners.

A wide range of amazing opportunities will be made available to our Accelerator Artist community throughout the year in cooperation with our partner record labels and technology brands.

PLAY

Accelerator artists get access to a range of opportunities to perform at some of London's best clubs throughout the year through the network of partner venues included in the London Music Conference Festival program.

London Music Conference and its sister events will offer a range of showcasing opportunities for artists participating in the Accelerator program.
