MIDƐM+23: a successful renaissance The international music event makes its big comeback in Cannes!
The precursor of the new Midem, from 19 to 21 January 2023 at the Palais des Festivals et des Congrès de Cannes and the Gare Croisette, was a great success with a wonderful line-up (Jean-Michel Jarre, Sofiane Pamart, Hyphen Hyphen, Fatboy Slim etc) and more than 9000 spectators who attended MIDƐM+LIVE concerts. This international event, sponsored by Jean-Michel Jarre, brought together the first members of the MuSee+ community and several dozen speakers around quality conferences and talks. The first 100 founding members were there to build together the future MIDƐM+, a new event model based on a community to make MIDƐM+ the Cannes Music Festival. The next edition of MIDƐM+ is scheduled for 24 to 27 January 2024 at the Palais des Festivals et des Congrès.
To face the challenges represented by the revival of this cult gathering of the music industry established in Cannes since 1967, the City of Cannes and its Palais des Festivals et des Congrès have joined forces with executive producers All Over / Panda Events, Hopscotch and Pianity. The concerts by Jean-Michel Jarre, Sofiane Pamart and Fatboy Slim were sold out. In addition to these concerts, professionals from the MuSee+ community could also discover emerging artists such as Oceanus Orientalis and Mulabs & Moullinex feat Lala Tamar & Maalem Khalid Sansi.
A new MIDƐM built by and for music professionals
Coming from five continents and 14 countries, these first 100 founding members (Deezer, Jukebox, Sesac, Horus Music, IFPI, Downtown Music Holding, Empire Records, Prodiss, Sacem, Universal Music France etc.), professionals representing all professions in the sector, met up to build the future MIDƐM+ together.
During the event, the community took part in a series of workshops and conferences to reflect on the following themes:
- major trends in the music industry;
- sound experiences in the metaverse;
- the upheavals linked to technological innovation;
- the growing success of women in the sector;
- Web3, a new way to create value in music.
It will meet throughout the year to put together the next edition, which is scheduled for 24 to 27 January 2024.
