More than just money: virtuous examples of music-brand collaborations
14.15-15.15 – Cariplo Factory –  Innovation Arena

Introducing: the Balkans 
10.45 – 11.30 – Casa Base

Within the music industry, Slovenia, Croatia, Serbia, Bosnia Herzegovina, Republic of Macedonia and neighbouring states are often just called the Balkans, Ex-Yugoslavia, even the former Austro-Hungarian Empire, but, actually, there’s much more to discover. While for a long time they rather not been considered in the international touring circuits, things seem to break off. A vivid cultural landscape emerged, featuring major festivals that Italy could almost be envious of, streaming services and developing audiences both local and international.
What are the opportunities? What are the dos and don’ts? What’s hot? How can you enter the market(s) and who are the players?
Qui tutte le info.


Strategic international management: alternatives to a centralistic approach? 
11.00 – 11.45 – Base Spazio B

Spend all your time and money trying to convince a UK/US-centered label, the ‘international’ media outlets, playlist people and sync folks? Or strategize differently, investing all you can on your neighbouring country or what some would call a “B” or exotic “C-market”? What does the artist need to bring in? There’re pros and cons, so find out what might be right for you, how to make the right choices in order to persist in an almost endlessly competitive international music environment.

Q&A: International Music Conferences 
15.00 – 16.15 – Base Spazio C

Almost every week you can attend a showcase conference somewhere around the world. A fast and direct cross-examination of some of the world’s leading Showcase-Conferences might help decision making: what’s in for you? What’s different from the others? How much does it cost? What’s the events’ mission and target? Who’s programming?
Qui tutte le info.


Festival Booking: put it all on the headliners?
16.30 – 17.30 – Base Spazio B

Festivals are in a central position to break new talent, hence have a responsibility for developing their own tomorrow’s headliners and courageously endorse new art. Though, is that a rather romantic idea at all sustainable in the nowadays competitive live music industry? Why do people buy tickets for a festival? Just to see their all-time fave or really to discover their future favourite artist in a curated lineup full of artistic integrity?
A special view on the Italian festival landscape reveals cultural differences and similarities to international events.
Qui tutte le info.

Who Pays the promo bill?
14.15 – 15.15 – Base Spazio C

What does the promoter do if she or he is not doing the promotion? What do we mean by promotion? What should a promoter cover for their risky 20% after breakeven? Why should the label pay the band’s promo bill if the band makes all their money touring? The agent sits in the middle asking everybody: why is there no promo?
Income streams have changed, 360° was a big thing some years ago. What’s the status quo and where is the business headed, in brutally honest markets like the UK, but also in Canada, Germany, Italy and elsewhere?
Qui tutte le info.


The (new) world music beyond its business 
16.30 – 17.30 – Base Spazio C

Beyond World Music: apparently roots related acts are trendsetting urban music and clubbing world, Sahara desert blues acts raving the psych-rock circuit. But really, can such artists exist in a competitive neoliberal commercial music environment or will it always be trapped in the public money culture ghetto? What professional setup is needed? What marketing approach? In all that, where’s the ‘traditional’ world music market going to?
Qui tutte le info.
