For over 50 years Midem has been one of the most important meeting spots of the international music business.
The “Marché international de l'édition musicale”, Midem for short, has been taking place since 1966. It is one of the most important, biggest trade fair in the music industry. Besides trade fair booths, it also offers lectures, seminars and concerts.
4-7 June, Cannes (FR)
Sunnier times in Cannes
Not only the weather has become sunnier since the professional music trade fair MIDEM has been moved from January to June. Along with the ongoing changes on the music market the professionals’ moods have improved, too, which is especially true for the publishers and record labels. Whereas piracy and price collapse had been the main topics in Cannes until only a few years ago, today they have given way to the chances and perspectives of the new internet technologies. Nonetheless, the golden times of CD sales are over. The passion for the music business, however, seems to be back.
This is also the case for the 35 Swiss professional delegates who had registered for the SWISS MUSIC stand, presented by SUISA, FONDATION SUISA and the Swiss Foundation of Phonoproducers.
More information about the Swiss presence at MIDEM 2019 is available on midem.swissmusic.ch.
The next MIDEM edition is going to take place from 2 to 5 June 2020.
