In the post-pandemic and politically insane world, it is more important than ever to learn about all the possibilities the different European music markets can offer and focus on regional cooperations to gain from the diversity of European music industry. The HEMI project has brought together organisatsions and festivals from 9 countries from the CSEE region and in this panel, we will have a closer look at the following music markets: Greece, Romania, Slovenia, Czech Republic and Poland.
Is it still the Wild East of Europe or are these countries hidden pearls of the continent? What are the key entry points and what should an artist know when approaching these markets?
Come and find out more about these music markets, learn about the festivals leading the development of the regional music industry and meet the key people of the region. The panel will be followed by a networking session with the panelists over a coffee table in the conference centre lobby.
The Hub for the Exchange of Music Innovation (HEMI) is a European initiative aiming to support Artists and Music Professionals from Central and South Eastern Europe (CSEE). Co-funded by the Creative Europe programme of the European Union, our vision is to trademark Central and South Eastern European Music Creativity.
