This year we will be wrapping up the conference on the Friday instead of Thursday, this all leads into a long holiday weekend in Barcelona during which the city throws one hell of a party for itself to celebrate its patron saint. Trip Advisor calls it "The biggest, baddest, loudest, happiest, 'fire-iest' mother of a festival ever." Microsoft recently featured it in a TV ad which gives you an idea of how it will roll. So come for the conference & stay for one of Barcelona's best kept secret, the Merce & BAM Music Festival 2014.

FMF is a concentrated, well run music industry event in Barcelona we've been attending for 3 years and the quality and range of panels and workshops draws an excellent spectrum of attendees
Future Music Forum was a wonderful event that brought together thinkers and doers in the music industry from around the world. It was the perfect setting to reflect on how far the industry has come and how much left there is to figure out
Mixcloud has been involved with every Future Music Forum edition since it's inception, which says it all
FMF is always a well run and insightful event in a relaxed setting. I've always met great people and come away having learned something new
I attended The Future Music Forum as a speaker in 2011 & must say I was pleasantly suprized by what I found, a very niche audience with innovative topics & speakers, I would definitely recommend this event
The FMF was an amazing chance to meet and to mingle with people who are the future of the music industry. We were excited to be a part of it
