Javier Lopez - Midem
Read more about Midem’s Javier Lopez who’ll be chairing our ‘Benefitting From Music Conferences’ panel this November.
For the last 14 years I have been the UK Sales Director for Midem, the leading international marketplace for the global music community. Previously I worked as a music journalist among other roles. I arrived to London over 25 years ago from sunny Madrid.
Midem 2018 last June united in Cannes 4,800 delegates from 80 countries and was packed with new initiatives, industry leaders and a wealth of talent, particularly from Africa.
One of the highlights for the last 3 years is the Midem Artist Accelerator, an exclusive bootcamp for artists and their entourages. Designed to support managers, agents, labels and publishers as they look to grow their artists’ profiles globally, it’s a unique opportunity to access Midem business expertise in export and innovative solutions.
Another great success this year was the Songwriting Camp bringing together exciting songwriters and producers from all over the world to collaborate and write music over 4 days.
Next year we’ll be bringing all the above initiatives under a new area called the Artist Hub and also we’ll be launching the 1st edition of the Midem International Awards.
Midem 2019 will take place June 4-7 in Cannes, France
