Wide Days

The Wide Days music business conference kicks off in Edinburgh today, with panels planned on the connection between the live and sports industries, and discussions on how to stand out on download stores and how to build and analyse your audience.

The two day event continues tomorrow, including a tech-focused session chaired by CMU Business Editor Chris Cooke. More details at

Meanwhile, on the other side of the world, tomorrow evening the team behind the International Music Summit in Ibiza, including Pete Tong, will host an invite-only symposium in Palm Springs, California ahead of this weekend’s Coachella festival which aims to enable “today’s electronic music leaders to meet and share ideas with those who can help drive their future businesses”.

Bringing together key tech and branding people with the great and the good of electronic music, reps from YouTube, Twitter, Smirnoff, Burberry, EA, William Morris and CAA will be among those taking part.
