About Us

Music Industry Yorkshire (previously Plugged In Yorkshire, comissioned by Yorkshire Forward) is an initiative of not-for-profit music and media organisation, Higher Rhythm Ltd and launched as Yorkshire’s Music Industry Development Network over 12 years ago, linking key players, organisations and events to provide support and signposting for the Yorkshire region’s aspiring and established music industry pros.

Alongside a region-wide programme of masterclasses, seminars and industry panel events, MIY has delivered high profile international events such as the Yorkshire Music Stage at South By South West (SxSW) in Texas, working in partnership with like-minded organisations to offer development opportunities for Yorkshire’s aspiring professional music artists and the wider regional industry.
