Midem Artist Accelerator

What is the Midem Artist Accelerator?

  • The Midem Artist Accelerator is an exclusive bootcamp for artists and their entourages.

    Designed to support managers, agents, labels and publishers as they look to grow their artists’ profiles globally, it’s a unique opportunity to access Midem business expertise in export and innovative solutions.

    Each year, 11 promising artists picked by an elite Artistic Committee all get to play live on the beautiful beach of Cannes, as well as benefit from a tailored 360 degrees programme onsite, including entry to selected conferences, learning and coaching sessions with industry mentors and networking opportunities with key players from the global music community
