They speak to artists and industry leaders alike from Rudimental, Orbital, Nervo and Eats Everything on the artist side and execs at Glastonbury, Elrow, ADE, Lost Village and BPM Festival on the festival side, among many others.

They share stories of past successes and what they think can be improved on the future.
