Stage To Studio

Headliner presents Stage to Studio in association with Sound On Sound magazine and PLASA - a two-day live music event with 14 emerging artists, and two masterclasses in partnership with Miloco Studios in which a packed-out crowd is educated in the nuances of recording a live band.

Long-time PLASA attendees have often bemoaned the London expo’s gradual straying away from its audio roots over the years. So it was to the delight of many that in 2019, PLASA gave the people what they wanted, working with Headliner and Sound On Sound to host Stage To Studio.


Chaired by original member of Iron Maiden, Tony Moore, an abundance of singer-songwriting talent took to the stage over two days, with headline acts VC Pines and Effie having their live tracks mixed immediately after their performances in front of a live audience, demonstrating techniques for capturing high quality sound from the stage, and maximising live multitrack recordings when mixing.
