The 2023 conference programme will take place from Wednesday 10 to Saturday 13 May at the Jury’s Inn Waterfront hotel in Brighton.
THE CMU+TGE SESSIONS
A conference within the conference, the CMU+TGE Sessions are three full-day strands, each focused on a different topic and packed with insights, briefings, interviews and discussions – all curated by the music business experts at CMU. The 2023 programme includes…
CMU and The Great Escape will once again bring together music educators and the music industry to put the spotlight on the best ways to support future music talent, both on-stage and behind the scenes.
What respective role do educators and the industry play in providing the knowledge, skills and opportunities that people need to build sustainable and successful careers in music?
How can we effectively equip musicians and creators with a framework that encourages creative entrepreneurship and helps them to develop the skills they need to succeed – whether as frontline artists with their own artist businesses or portfolio musicians and creators selling their skills and expertise to the industry, media, brands and beyond?
And what do current and future music industry leaders – executives and entrepreneurs – need to know to pursue successful careers in the business, to help teams thrive, and to shape the future of the ever-changing music sector?
CMU and The Great Escape review how deals are being done in the music business today.
All kinds of music industry deal-making will be in the spotlight. That includes the deals between artists and their business partners – including labels, publishers, promoters, agents and managers. Plus also the deals done between the music industry and users of music, including digital platforms, media and consumer brands.
How are the deals changing? How are they negotiated? What issues and challenges stop deals being done – or the deal-making from even starting? And how are new technologies impacting on the deal-making process?
CMU and The Great Escape puts the spotlight on the wider creator economy.
We’ll dissect and discuss the growing number of tools, platforms and market-places being used by creators of music to write, record and iterate music, to facilitate collaborations, and to generate new income from their creative expertise. And we’ll look at what being part of the creator economy can mean for musicians – as both creators and consumers.
Plus, we’ll review the digital tools and platforms that help frontline artists – and other creators in and beyond music – to grow their fanbases and monetise the fan relationship.
