The Great Escape 2020

Yesterday we published full outlines of each of the three CMU+TGE conferences that will take place as part of The Great Escape in Brighton this May, plus we announced the first batch of speakers taking part.

Unlike any other music conference, at The Great Escape CMU picks three key topics and then presents five hours of talks, interviews, case studies and debates around those themes. This allows delegates to dig much deeper, so to better navigate and understand all the key challenges, opportunities and trends in the business of music.

This year’s topics are music education on Wednesday 13 May, music media on Thursday 14 May and global music markets on Friday 15 May.

Along the way we’ll look at what knowledge and resources early-career artists need; why creative entrepreneurship should be included in the music curriculum; how podcasters find an audience, make money and promote new music; why the way music in TV is licensed is changing; how streaming, touring and social trends differ around the world; and the key things artist and their business partners need to know when expanding into new markets.
