The Midem music conferences takes place in Cannes every year in France, 2-3 weeks after the prestigious film festival.
If you’re based in Europe and/or planning beautiful sunny vacations, the Midem is the place for you!
It’s an incredibly well-respected music industry event.
The focus is a little bit broader than the TAXI Road Rally and Sync Summit but there’s still plenty of information and feedback opportunities for music composers that are looking to work in TV, film and games.
Pro tip: make sure you attend the panels on branding and positioning. These will help when you’re pitching your songs to music supervisors and/or music publishers.
What Do You Do BEFORE You Get There?
Whenever you attend a music business event, it’s important that you come prepared to make the most of it.
Be clear about why you’re there and who you want to meet
What are you trying to accomplish? Who might be able to help you with that?
What kind of panels might be interesting for you?
Look at the program in advance and actually make these decisions, commit to 2-3 things you will absolutely get done during the music conference.
No excuses. No shying away from the challenge 😉
Be clear about what you’re selling
No one has the time to hear you rambling on about your music and life story.
Make sure you have a short elevator pitch that doesn’t say anything like: “I write in lots of different genres”.
