In the heydays of social media and virtual communication, it is music conferences and showcase festivals that continue to be the vital hubs for the international music community. These types of events are the hotspots to discover new music and simultaneously meet, socialize and discuss with those that support careers and talents, innovate and renovate the music ecosystem.
The Federation of Music Conferences aims to connect, represent and empower music conferences with an international, national and regional target, which share the scope of taking care for the interests and belongings of the music ecosystem, develop a stronger and fair creative economy and build bridges between music and other CCI.
