International day 26.11
Music & Media united the Finnish music industry with music industry professionals from around the world to meet and discuss the current topics on November 26th, Thursday. The Music & Media 2020 International day was organised as an online event, together with Music & Media’s strategic partner Music Finland.
International Day included panel discussions and keynotes and networking with international guests. Topics included diversity in music business, expert tips on international breakthroughs, as well as artist management during Covid-19 era.
Speakers included Jesse Markin, Lxandra, Noora Louhimo, Teemu Brunila, Dalia Stasevska and Robert Meijerink (Eurosonic).
LOOKING AT MUSIC & MEDIA FROM A NEW PERSPECTIVE
Due to the uncertain state of our sector and society, we feel it is no longer feasible or safe to organise Music & Media and the Industry Awards Gala 2020 in their traditional forms, therefore we postponed our event to 2021.
Adversity can be reversed, so it is now high time that we re-imagine absolutely everything we do and create more adaptable ways to go along with the change. Our mission to bring the industry together to discuss the future has been stronger more than ever this year. Therefore, while we already start planning Music & Media 2021, we intend to continue pursuing our mission, and look for alternative and safe ways to bring our industry together as we have done over the spring & summer. We will organise at least one physical gathering.
Updates on pop-up Music & Media events in the fall and winter 2020 will be announced during the coming months.
Stay safe and stay tuned!
