Day 2 – Mini Summits/FMF Live

This year the FMF is partnering with some of the world’s leading companies, consultants & organisations to bring you an unrivaled conference program. Our longstanding collaboration with MIDiA Research continues with the return of the MIDiA Summit.

We are also delighted to announce our partnership with  Beatdapp’s mini-summit which will delve into the intricacies of streaming fraud detection with three illuminating sessions.

On stage 2 we continue our tradition of focus on artist management. We are delighted to announce our partnership with EMMA (European Music Managers Association) who are co-curating a summit. With this summit we aim to examine the areas in which managers are lacking support, platform role models and have open discussions about how managers can encourage change within the industry.

The FMF AI Summit: Curated by Gareth Deakin & Maarten Walraven

Our aim with the summit is to provide a platform for discourse around AI and music that bridges both the business side and the perspective of artists. Too often the dialogue in recent times conference content on this topic skims the surface, infantilizes artists, leans heavily on worn out FUD tropes or gives all the oxygen to the more established mechanics of the music industry. We instead wish to provide a more balanced platform for discourse, one from which a diverse array of speakers and opinions can be shared in an effort to start important discourse on the future of the industry and the culture we wish to sustain

FMFLive: We return to our spiritual home at Sidecar in 2024 where we have seen so many legendary sessions (Brian Jackson & Just a LiveMPC comes to mind)

This extended showcase session will bring together some of the best emerging acts from across Europe. Stay tuned for more information & dates to apply to play.

Day 2 – The Inaugural FMF Electronic Day

The Future Music Forum (FMF) is renowned for its insightful conferences that blend music, technology, and media to chart the future directions of the music industry. This year, we are excited to introduce the inaugural FMF Electronic Day—an entire day dedicated to the vibrant and ever-evolving world of electronic music.

This event will offer a deep dive into the current state of the electronic music industry, exploring emerging trends, technology, production innovations, and market dynamics.

We are honoured to be curating this day of talks with AFEM & Bridge48.
