MIDEM is the acronym for Marché International du Disque et de l’Edition Musicale, which is organised annually in and around the Palais des Festivals in Cannes, France. The organizers say it is the leading international business event for the music ecosystem and indeed it is very well known in the industry! MIDEM has been around since 1967. Each year thousands of musicians, producers, agents, managers, lawyers, executives, entrepreneurs and journalists from around the globe are attending the event.
While delegates from recording, artist management, and publishers use the fair to maintain and expand their network, new artists showcase their material. Live music is on show in the evenings and contributes to the nice atmosphere. MIDEM 2015 will take place from Friday, 5th June, to Monday, 8th June. There are really a lot of reasons to visit the MIDEM from boosting your network & signing deals, over getting new inspiration from music & tech pros, brands, agencies and artists, to simply enjoying non-stop music & getting a tan!
