HARMAN Professional Solutions has launched the “Hit The Studio” Golden Ticket promotion. This gives musicians in participating European countries the chance to win a Golden Ticket for an all-expenses paid trip to the iconic Metropolis Studios in London for a tour and recording session. 

In addition, one of the Golden Ticket winners will be chosen for ‘My Metropolis Time’. This is a personalised day at Metropolis Studios to work on their own original music with some of its Grammy Award-winning audio engineers, including Liam Nolan (Adele, Clean Bandit, Jess Glynne and Calvin Harris).  

“AKG, JBL Professional and Soundcraft are offering an exceptional, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to our customers across Europe to follow in the footsteps of world-famous recording artists who have worked in these studios. The producing, engineering and mastering talent at Metropolis are among the best in the world and our winners will have one-to-one interaction to ask questions and hone their recording skills.” 

Michelle Downey, EMEA Marketing Director, HARMAN Professional Solutions.

Golden Ticket holders will be treated to three days of fun and festivities: 

Day 1

Travel in style to London and check in at your hotel. Enjoy dinner and drinks with your fellow Golden Ticket winners from our retail partners. 

Day 2

HIT THE STUDIO! Enjoy breakfast at the studio, get a tour, then settle down to watch a live recording session. Grab some lunch before hitting the studio yourselves for a group recording session. At the end of the day, find out which lucky professional artist in the group has won the MY METROPOLIS TIME competition. Nip back to the hotel to change before heading out to dinner to celebrate.

Day 3

The MY METROPOLIS TIME winner will HIT THE STUDIO again to work on their very own track with Metropolis’ audio and mastering engineers.
