Chop What? We are really excited to announce that the first edition of Chop Shop "Beat Market and Beat Battle" is here! This event has been a long time coming but thanks to our hard working team we made it happen! This is a whole day event divided into 2 parts. Firstly it`s a BEAT MARKET where 20 producers are given the opportunity to be professionally represented and to sell their beats straight to MCs and singers.

This is taking place between 1pm and 7pm and its FREE to attend for all visitors! All Beat Market sellers will be supplied with an iPad locked into an exhibition stand where you can play your music from and a custom made Chop Shop T-Shirt to distinguish the "Beat Vendors".

This is your chance to be the sales man and generate revenue for yourself while expanding your networks! All income is to be kept by the seller, its a Cash Only event!

This is taking place between 8pm and 1am and its £7 in advance to attend.
