In 2018 iluvlive celebrates its 15th Birthday and iluvlive+ is part of a series of new initiatives to commemorate this milestone.
ILUVLIVE + events will kick off with a panel with two industry representatives, followed by an audience Q&A. Five lucky attendees will be selected by prize draw for an individual session with our two attending panelists, with the opportunity to pitch music and /or ask for feedback and advice.
The night is rounded off with live performances from local talent. Finally, one local act will be selected by the panel and iluvlive team to perform at a future event in London with £150 contributed to expenses. The selected act will be informed by email the following day.
