First Class Industry Experts To Select Rising International Talent

Bookmark and Share

Midem announces that the call for entries is open for the third edition of the Midem Artist Accelerator (MAA), the only international career booster for emerging musical talent.

MAA is a unique programme designed to fast-track the international careers of selected artists and is part of Midem, which takes place in Cannes, France, from 6-9 June 2017.

Nine upcoming international artists will be selected by an Artistic Committee, made up of leading industry experts that already includes: Laurence Muller, Founder and Managing Director, Snoot (France); Yoon-Young Kong (Dalse), Founder and Executive Producer, Zandari Culture Company (South Korea); Willy Ehmann, SVP Domestic GSA, Sony Music Entertainment (Germany); Christopher Kaskie, President, Pitchfork (USA); Patrik Larsson, A&R and Label Manager, Playground Music Scandinavia (Sweden); Christian Bernhardt, Agent, United Talent Agency (USA); and Rob Hallett, Founder, Robomagic (UK).

"I'm truly looking forward to being a part of the Artistic Committee and to helping discover and nurture the next generation of global talent. This is what we do, this is what we live for. Discovering talent and helping them get to the next level of reaching their goals. And to work so closely with established conference-brand Midem feels extra special. It is a conference I have been attending for so many years since I started more than 20 years ago. Can´t wait for this to get started. I am excited!" said Patrik Larsson from Playground Music Scandinavia, the biggest independent music company across all of Scandinavia.

All nine finalists and their entourages will benefit from a 360° programme featuring a range of curated networking opportunities, as well as learning and coaching sessions. Plus, they will have the opportunity to play a live set on the Midem By Night main stage and have their song featured across Midem's communications, as well as on the official Midem 2017 vinyl compilation.

Past finalists include: AKUA NARU (jazz/hip-hop, USA/Germany); AL BAIRRE (pop, South Africa); ALFRED HALL (pop, Norway); ALO WALA (pop, Denmark); ALYSHA BRILLA (pop, Canada); ANDREYA TRIANA (pop, UK); BELLEVUE DAYS (rock/alternative, UK); CLUBCHEVAL (EDM, France); FAR FROM ALASKA (rock/alternative; Brazil); FLO MORRISSEY (alternative/folk, UK); GHETTS (R&B/hip-hop/urban, UK); HUNDREDS (pop, Germany); KOO NTAKRA (R'n'B/hip hop/urban, Ghana); LITTLE BARRIE (rock/alternative, UK); MALKY (pop, Germany); NVDES (EDM, USA); and SYNAPSON (EDM, France).

"We are very honoured to be one of the bands that took part in the 2016 MAA programme. It was an amazing experience and I am sure we are going to have great results from all the contacts made and lessons learned. We would definitely recommend Midem to any other artists interested in developing their international careers," enthused Thiago Endrigo Justiniano Alves, Manager of Far From Alaska (2016 finalists).

"We're very glad to welcome back this Midem flagship event for the third year in 2017. A glance at previous editions illustrates how popular and successful it has been, so we're looking forward to pushing the Midem Artist Accelerator to the next level," said Jérôme Delhaye, Director of Reed MIDEM's Entertainment Division, which organises Midem.

Managers, agents, labels and publishers looking to grow their artists' profiles globally can submit their most promising artists for free until 5 February 2017.
