Current challenges that the music industry is facing have been pushing the industry to re-imagine our everyday work. Following a spring with no cultural events and encounters with music fans, the music industry is working hard in order to innovate safe ways to bring music and fans together and there is a lot to do.
“Hope for the best and prepare for the worst” has been the attitude of the music industry for the last few months. Music & Media 2020 edition is scheduled for October 8-9, but prior to that, we are in dire need to get together and look into the situation in hand more collectively. In order to address this need, we’re launching “On our way to Music & Media” webinar series to check the pulse of the live music sector and ideate on how the future can be safe and sustainable.
The first three confirmed sessions are going to be organised in cooperation with partners Music Finland and LiveFIN and also ideated together with the upcoming umbrella organisation, representing the entire event industry, Tapahtumateollisuus. The sessions collectively will focus on the current and upcoming status of the live music industry and discuss the current state in Finland and Europe, along with successful examples, threads and opportunities that the future lays for us.
Two of the sessions will be held in English.
