BPI @Sound City 2023
The BPI is the representative voice for the UK’s world-leading record labels and music companies. We are delighted to again participate in Sound City 23, and this year we will be hosting the 1-2-1 sessions and will have fantastic music companies including Tunecore, Levellr, YMU, Evolution music, SonX and Syncr taking part.
This year celebrating our 50th anniversary, we champion the UK’s recorded music community, safeguarding the rights of its members and of the artists, performers and label members of collecting body PPL. Our membership consists of well over 500 independent labels, associate members and Universal Music UK, Sony Music Entertainment UK and Warner Music UK - which together accounts for approximately 85% of legitimate domestic music consumption and around 1 in 10 streams globally.
The BPI promotes British music at home and overseas through its international trade missions, including its annual LA Sync event; participation at major music conferences, such as SXSW; the Music Export Growth Scheme; and The BRIT Awards, which we organise. We administer The BRIT Certified Platinum, Gold and Silver Awards Programme, co-own the Official Charts Company with ERA, and are home to The Mercury Prize. The BPI encourages and supports innovation and technology through its Music & Tech Springboard Programme, and additionally provides insights, training and networking with its extensive free masterclasses, networking events, Insight Sessions and reports alongside its public affairs and communications work.
