One of the best steps forward for the Midem industry conference in recent years has been its expanded focus on Africa: not just booking a few speakers, but running events there and programming day-long strands at its flagship Cannes event.
Now Midem is building on that with a partnership with Ugandan music festival Nyege Nyege. It includes a two-day ‘Spotlight on East Africa’ event with sessions to be made available through Midem’s digital platform.
Midem says that speakers from telcos, collecting societies, labels, publishers, artists and managers, journalists and industry bodies will be taking part, although the programme has yet to be announced.
