MIDEM 2019: THE INTERNATIONAL B2B MUSIC MARKET – CALL FOR EXPRESSIONS OF INTEREST – DUE DATE: SUNDAY 31 MARCH 2019


The Australian Independent Record Labels Association (AIR) are now seeking expressions of interest from Victorian independent labels to attend Midem, from 4-7 June 2019 which will be held at Palais des Festivals in Cannes, France.

Midem is the leading international event for the global music community. With four days of music conferences, professional development and business networking opportunities. Midem is dedicated to helping the music industry develop business growth by bringing together the key players of the music ecosystem including artists, label managers, publishers, distributors, streaming services, rights collecting societies, booking agencies, promotors, brands, communication agencies, high-tech companies and startups.

Midem conferences have been at the forefront of the key trends and innovations in the music business throughout the world, from the launch of the very first streaming services to the growing opportunities of Blockchain, AI and VR in music, as well as identifying new business models across emerging markets.

This project is supported by the Victorian Government through Creative Victoria and the Victorian Music Development Office (VMDO)

Four established label representatives and two emerging label representatives will be selected to receive fully funded Midem 2019 conference registration.

In addition, emerging label recipients will be provided with complimentary return economy airfares to Nice, France, 5 nights accommodation and travel insurance.  

As a condition of their involvement, established labels must agree to mentor an emerging label for the duration of Midem.

Due to limited capacity, we ask all interested parties to show an expression of interest by filling out this survey BY SUNDAY 31 MARCH 2019 – it shouldn’t take more than 5 minutes to complete.
