Back from Cannes

Published on Sunday 22 January 2023

I’m back from Cannes! What I learned: the plan is for MIDEM – now owned by the city of Cannes – to return proper in January 2024 with a revamped conference and market-place; training programme for artists and execs; and concert series also open to the public. They are also building a network of senior music business people who, among other things, will inform the evolution and programming of the conference. This week was a gathering of the first 100 members of that network to re-launch the brand to industry and the city. Here ends what I learned.
