How to Start a Record Label

Almost every great artist has an even greater label behind them. Some of these artists even take it to the next level and use all the knowledge they’ve gathered over the years to start a label of their own. But what does it take to start a new label? And are there really any benefits for an artist in becoming a label owner? During "How To Start Your Own Label" some of the best-known professionals from the dance music industry will take to the stage and discuss some of the roadblocks that may occur along the way, as well as the advantages that come with the ownership of a label. An informative and in-depth educational discussion for future entrepreneurs.

This year Elena Colombi, Marco Faraone, Nastia & Sander van Doorn will discuss how creating a record label impacted on their careers.

Please bear in mind that ADE Sound Lab tickets receive priority access. In case there are still a few seats available ten minutes before the session, we will open the doors for ADE Card holders.
