Midem is the acronym for Marché International du Disque et de l'Edition Musicale, which is organised annually in and around the Palais des Festivals et des Congrès in Cannes, France. The tradeshow, which is billed as the leading international business event for the music ecosystem, has been held since 1967. Several thousand musicians, producers, agents, managers, lawyers, executives, entrepreneurs and journalists from around the globe regularly attend the event, which is usually held at the end of January, or early February. While delegates from recording, artist management, and publishers network, new artists showcase their material and live music is on show in the evenings.
The event is now focused on the core music business (labels, publishers, rights societies & more); the technology sector (startups, developers and big tech companies); and brands and the agencies that represent them for music+brand campaigns.
Midem 2019 will premiere the Midem Music Awards, the first truly data-driven music prizes, shining a spotlight on artists from all corners of the world and celebrating regional and global success stories. The prize will award the most succesful artists on digital streaming platforms.
