UK guests include the editor of leading music magazine NME, Conor
McNicholas; Darling Department publicist Rachel Hendry; V2 Records'

Topics over the four days include the rise of the independent label; how to get your band noticed in the UK; what you have to do as an international artist to make the pages of NME; current trends in the UK market; the future of music press; what effect digital will really have on the physical side of the business; and whether there is a need for bands to have their own publicists.
