It’s Great Escape week everybody! Although this year’s online edition of TGE takes place on Thursday and Friday, delegates will get access to the conference platform from later today, allowing them to plan their personal schedules and get busy networking with other attendees.

Some bonus CMU panels and webinars will also be popping up during the week ahead of the livestreamed sessions, with these three panel discussions set to appear later today…

FUTURE MUSIC TALENT: Explaining Music Copyright 
What are the top ten key copyright facts that all early-career music-makers should know about – and how can the music industry and music educators better get that information out there? We compile some top tips with Ali Condon from PRS For Music; Lucie Caswell from the Music Publishers Association; Niclas Molinder from Session; and artist and FAC board member Roxanne de Bastion. Chris Cooke from CMU moderates.

FUTURE MUSIC STRATEGIES: The Diversifying Digital Market 
Although premium services generate by far the most streaming revenues today, the market is diversifying – what services and kinds of services will drive the next phase of growth? Find out with Craig May at FUGA; Henry Prince at Believe; Sophie Goossens at Reed Smith; and CMU’s Sam Taylor. Chris Cooke from CMU moderates.

FUTURE MUSIC WORLD: Connecting The Music World 
Leading music industry practitioners from Lebanon, Ukraine, Nigeria and Indonesia discuss how musicians in their countries make money from their music-making, as well as the impact of digital in recent years – and COVID in the last twelve months – on the business of music within each of their regions. Hear from Anthony Semaan at Beirut Jam Sessions; Dartsya Tarkovka at Music Export Ukraine; Godwin Tom at iManage Africa; and Rizky Sasono from the National Coalition Of Arts in Indonesia. Chris Cooke from CMU moderates.
