IT'S A RICH MAN'S WORLD: Should we laugh or cry that the Access to Finance session at next weekend's In The City has been opened to non-ITC delegates; but at the cost of seventy quid. For those that can afford it, there's going to be a seminar about the "practicalities, options and barriers involved in accessing finance for music-related companies." Here's one for free, guys - charging a weeks worth of dole is a pretty big barrier to allowing people with talent and skills get access to the help that could get them rolling. The advert suggests "start-up music companies" should attend - but at seventy quid a pop, how can they afford to? The panelists would probably mutter that you need to invest to develop, before wandering off to have some roast swan and champagne. If you want to go, and can afford it, info@mpaonline.org.uk
