Midem - Home of the Global Music Community

Midem’s programmes for artists

At Midem, our ambition is to build a truly modern and innovative music business and push the boundaries of our industry to better serve talent and creativity on a global scale. Therefore, Midem is committed to working closely with artists and their teams to help them navigate through the creative and exciting environment of the music ecosystem.

In today’s globalised music economy, the music industry and all its sectors require innovation, adaptability, and artistic freedom to develop new business models and fresh ways to interact with fans.

Artists have the opportunity to release their music to a wider audience than ever before, and music fans across the globe can experience music from a more diverse set of artists, giving opportunities for new success stories to emerge from anywhere.

In this context of changing in how people discover and consume music, artists must forge new partnerships with social media, tech companies and brands to reach audiences and improve their reputation.

This year's especially, Midem launches the Artist Club with a brand-new programme and dedicated venue to create a unique exchange and networking platform for artists across the world.

Come & Join the Artist Club at Midem in Cannes!
