London's music conference for young people is back!

There's no shortage of dance music conferences on the industry's yearly cal, think: Miami Music Week, ADE and IMS to name but a few, but London's Take Note is the new kid on the block. 

Aimed at industry up-and-comers, students and/or those looking at a career change, Take Note provides insight and advice from some of the globe's top dance music managers, PRs, journalists, agents and artists, and is set to kick off for the second time on Saturday 19th November. 

It's back at its home in London's trendy East End (at co-work space Second Home) and will feature two rooms of all-day panels featuring B.Traits, Danny Daze, Mark Brown, Toddla T and loads more — you can find the full list of speakers below. 

If you can't wait until November, Bill Brewster is set to host a special three-part series of events in the run up, looking at club culture and trends in the capital, the first of which is on Tuesday 13th September. 

Want a taster of what to expect from Take Note? Check out this wrap video from last year's event featuring DJ Mag's own Charlotte Lucy Cijffers (digital and Ibiza editor).
