MIDEM Festival Cannes 2015– A Brief Insight

The music industry has blossomed into its own ecosystem, a marketplace of both commerce and creativity.

Le Marché International de Disque et de l’Edition Musicale was founded in 1967. It has been occuring at Le Palais de Festival in Cannes ever since.

Every year in June, the MIDEM festival arrives in Cannes. It creates an educational & enjoyable meeting ground for those who aim to succeed in this competitive and dynamic industry. With over six thousand participants and more than one thousand businesses attending from around the globe, this is the ideal spot for those that wish to expand their international network, create links with other industries, learn & improve on practices, sign some deals and take whatever business they’re in, to the next level!

The festival has invited some big players to speak including: Alexander Ljung (Founder & CEO of Soundcloud) and Doug Morris (CEO of Sony Music Entertainment). Further to this, the Festival hosts a range of popular musicians who will give live performances (many of which are open to the public also!). There are over 200 artists that perform in the space of a week. Furthermore, it is a festival conscious of other cultures – it includes specific Asian, African and Latin rooms and workshops.

No doubt, nightclubs such as Gotha and Baoli will be in full swing, with many celebrity and high profile figures found letting loose along La Croisette in Cannes. As we’ve seen in the past, Cannes Port & Port Canto will be filled with luxury super yachts. Music industry CEOs & chart topping musicians throw intimate parties till the early hours or entertain clients. Many of the participants also choose to charter day yachts over the weekend, and take in the majestic vistas under the beaming Cote d’Azur sun.
