Midem Artist Accelerator goes to the essence of our business-talent discovery. I hope it continues to grow and develop into an effective tool for artists and industry professionals.
Natalia Nastaskin, 2015 jury member
We are very honored to be one of the bands that took part of the MAA program this year, it was an amazing experience and I am sure we are going to have great results from all the contacts made and lessons learned! Midem was a great experience and we would definitely recommend to any other artist interested in international careers.
Thiago Endrigo Justiniano Alves, Far From Alaska Manager (2016 finalists)
I am honored and thrilled to have the opportunity to renew my involvement for this second edition of the MAA Artistic Committee. This entire project stems from such good place with so many good people and perspectives, and continuing to see it grow and experimenting with what is possible I hope is as rewarding to everyone involved as has been to me.
