The Great Escape 2022

CMU will once again present three full-day conference strands for industry delegates at The Great Escape in Brighton this May – and yesterday we announced 20 speakers who will be taking part in two of those strands, both of which are supported by UK record labels association the BPI.

Those two CMU+TGE strands are…

MUSIC+DATA, which will explain the role data plays in getting artists recommended, played and paid; look at the latest trends in social, streaming and ticketing data, and how that impacts on music marketing; and provide a user-friendly and bullshit-free guide to NFTs and the blockchain.

MUSIC+VIDEO, which will look at all the latest trends, developments and debates in the sync market, with inputs galore from music supervisors around the world; explain how to create great video content that engages influencers and fans alike; and will put the spotlight on all the opportunities for artists, labels and promoters within the metaverse.
