The main objective of this one-of-a-kind event is to provide attendees with an overview of the vast opportunities that lie within the music scene and expose them to trending topics in the music business while connecting them with its greatest minds.
Our first sold-out career day event was made possible through a collaboration with three driven University of Amsterdam students.
