Most Wanted: Music returns on 26–28 October – and after a challenging 18 months, the Most Wanted: Music – Berlin’s hybrid music business conference returns with its sights set firmly on #change. The conference is a hybrid online-offline event: finally, you can attend in person again and rub shoulders with real people at Berlin’s historic cultural centre Kulturbrauerei – or join in remotely via our interactive digital conference platform. MW:M21 opens with the now-traditional festivities of the listen to berlin: Awards on Tuesday 26th before the main conference starts on Wednesday 27th, followed by our decentralised MW:M Satellites partner events – scattered all over Berlin – on Thursday 28th.
The music industry is a very different beast to the one of early 2020 – and while change may have been forced upon us all, a fairer, more exciting industry awaits: one filled with more opportunities, where individuals call the shots, and art earns the money it deserves.
The question is how to ride this wave of change? MW:M21 aims for its attendees to leave with the clarity needed to navigate this newly multifaceted industry. The conference is designed to help everyone understand the new possibilities in today’s music landscape, which changes should be made to leverage them – and how to develop those changes into a sustainable, creative, and satisfying career.
