Long-running music industry conference Midem has been saved, thanks to a deal between its previous organiser RX France and the city of Cannes. RX said in December 2021 that it was pulling out of Midem, but said talks were in progress with the Cannes authorities to potentially take over it. Now that deal has been concluded.
“In order to rediscover this emblematic event on the Cannes calendar, the Town Hall of Cannes is taking over the Midem so that it once again becomes the essential meeting place for music professionals from all over the world,” said Cannes mayor David Lisnard, promising that it is consulting major and independent labels, live music companies, streaming services and industry bodies to make sure the show – which will return in 2023 – is fit for purpose.
