TGE’S PROGRAMME OF EVENTS FOR THE MUSIC BUSINESS.
The TGE Conference is the programme of events presented especially for the 3500 music industry professionals that attend TGE each year. It includes the CMU+TGE Sessions, keynote in-conversations, partner panels, the Elevate programme, networking events and more.
The programme is split into a number of strands. More information about each strand – and the industry leaders and innovators taking part – will appear here in the coming months.
The 2022 conference programme will take place from Wednesday 11 to Saturday 14 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 2022 programme includes…
MUSIC + EDUCATION
The Great Escape and CMU bring together music educators, music development organisations and the music industry to discuss the best ways to nurture, support and educate young musicians, early-career music-makers and future music talent – on and off stage.
Tapping into the latest research work from CMU’s Pathways Into Music Foundation, we’ll look at how DIY phase artists are going about building a fanbase in 2022, and how educators can inform that process and sign-post the tools and resources now available.
Plus what are the biggest challenges facing music educators today – and what support can the music industry offer?
MUSIC + DATA
The Great Escape and CMU put the spotlight on all the ways data now drives success in the music business.
The data that gets artists and songwriters paid. The data that will help #fixstreaming. The data that informs music discovery. The data that powers music marketing. The data that profiles fans and fanbases. The data that sits at the heart of ticketing. The data that is powering new direct-to-fan products and opportunities.
Who creates this data? Who controls this data? And how can artists, songwriters, labels, publishers, agents, promoters, venues, artist managers and music marketeers ensure that all the data is accurate, accessible and driving that success?
MUSIC + VIDEO
The Great Escape and CMU explores the intersection between music and video.
Where are TV producers, movie studios, gaming companies, brands, online creators and social influencers sourcing their music in 2022 – what are their options, what are their requirements and what do the deals look like?
Plus what about all the video content the music industry now creates every single day? What content works? Where do you publish and push the videos? How do you influence the influencers? And how much of that content is about marketing – and when should video be a revenue generator for artists, songwriters and the wider music industry?
