Have some CMU Insights from The Great Escape

Thank you one and all to everyone who joined us at the CMU+TGE conferences at The Great Escape last week. We unveiled our ten step music career pathway and put the spotlight on our pilot music education and career mapping projects. We teamed up with MMF to launch their latest Digital Dollar guide explaining the complexities of song royalty chains. And we joined with BPI to discuss all the ways in which music marketing is evolving.

Along the way we heard from a plethora of insightful music industry people who offered differing perspectives on the challenges and opportunities that abound in the worlds of music education, music streaming and music marketing. Plus we got to sit down for keynote in-conversations with three very brilliant people: Cassandra Gracey from 4th Floor Creative, Justin Kalifowitz from Downtown Music and the musical genius that is Chilly Gonzales.

This year also saw CMU team up with TGE and Arts Council England to launch the new Elevate programme. 30 early-career music industry people enjoyed an enhanced, subsidised and curated TGE experience, expanding their knowledge and networks along the way. CMU’s Chris Cooke ran daily debriefs with these 30 inspiring future leaders of the music industry, while CMU:DIY delivered a series of Elevate Seminars for all TGE attendees on Saturday.

So, lots of great people, informative conversations and lively debates. And there were lots of CMU Insights as well. If you came along you can now access the CMU Insights and CMU:DIY slides that we presented this year here.
