Acting as a catalyst for change in the music ecosystem, at its eighth edition, the Milan based event has grown to become one of Europe’s best new music economy conferences. The music meeting and festival is a celebration of talent, creativity and new ideas. Offering three packed days, with a program that showcases international diversity across over 60 events, including panels, workshops the day, with over 250 industry speakers and with a genre-blurring mix of over 30 artists from different countries showcasing throughout the night. Linecheck is the ultimate meeting place between professionals and enthusiasts of not just the music sector, but an incubator for dialogues between music, creative, technology and cultural industries, bridging the gaps between Italy, other European countries, the UK and the rest of the world.
The main theme of this eighth edition of the music conference will be #INEXILE, chosen to explore territorial absence, the detachment from metropolitan or local spaces, but also the inability to exercise freedom of movement towards new homelands. For music artists and the overall music ecosystem, exploration is a necessity. Physical spaces are important because they are important sites of cultural production. One doesn’t need to be physically removed from the homeland in order to be exiled. Exile can take place in different cultural spaces, especially through processes like colonisation and modernization.
#INEXILE will resonate across the music meetings, and Linecheck’s conference main topics: the main theme Beyond Boundaries will explore territorial borders and Europeanisation, as well as cross-sectoriality, proposing innovation as a way to overcome territorial, mental and technological boundaries. Creators’ Rights will focus on creators’ rights in all its forms, from Sync in advertising, film and tv, metaverse and web3 to creators’ economies, brand activations, metadata done right and the rise of online radio and podcasts. Shared Experiences will explore sustainable events and Green Deal, innovative ways of festivals and tour promotion, NFT and Blockchain in the events industry, Music Cities. Back will also be Linecheck’s Matchmaking Sessions, which will connect international delegates to Italian industry experts covering different sectors of the industry through sessions such as Meet The Managers, Meet Label, Distribution & PR and Meet Promoters, Clubs and Festivals.
