On Wednesday night, a number of ILMC mainstays will take place, shamelessly unperturbed by the pandemic’s attempt to prevent them.

At 19:00, all delegates are invited to The ‘Escape From Reality’ Quiz of the Year – with players going head to head in a truly epic battle of music biz brains. Expect questions on both the industry and the people in it, as well as general knowledge tests and assorted pop-culture ephemera.

Following the quiz, and after the evening’s showcases have kicked off, The ‘Battle Royale’ Texas Hold ‘Em Poker Tourney takes place in a private online casino in the heart of hyperspace.
