The Great Escape 2021

Yesterday we published more details about the CMU+TGE conference programme that will take place as part of the online edition of The Great Escape this May. As always, the programme will consist of three strands, each combining insights, case studies, interviews and panel discussions.

The three strands are as follows:

FUTURE MUSIC TALENT will look at how music educators and the music industry can better support entrepreneurial early-career music-makers, how COVID has impacted the fanbase building process for DIY phase artists, and why it’s more important than ever to educate the creative community about copyright and data.

FUTURE MUSIC STRATEGIES will consider the latest trends in streaming, fanbase building and the direct-to-fan relationship, and investigate what the touring and festival markets will look like in the post-COVID, post-Brexit world. What technologies, data, influencers, partnerships and strategies will be essential for success in the years ahead?

FUTURE MUSIC WORLD will investigate and celebrate initiatives that are making the music world more diverse, more sustainable and more healthy, and consider the role music-makers and the music industry can play in tackling prejudice in society, addressing the climate emergency, and rebuilding communities as we recover from the pandemic.
