  • Music & Esports

    Why are Music and Esports merging and gaining more momentum now than ever before?

    Music and Esports focus at Midem

    It’s a two-way exchange. On one hand, Esports leagues and game developers are blooming into full-fledged media brands, and are looking to the music business for both financial and cultural capital. On the other hand, off of a streaming high that has returned their industry to a state of growth, music companies are looking to diversify their revenue, experiment with new audiovisual technologies and tap into the power of highly engaged subcultures.

    Midem & Esports BAR join forces to develop a combined programme dedicated to growing business opportunities in Esports & Music. Jump on the Esports & Music bandwagon with us to reach an untapped audience and build creative scenes.
