EMMA at Music & Media

THURSDAY OCTOBER 4th

EMMA representatives took part in the panel ‘The Mechanics of Music Management in 2018’, organised during Music & Media event in Finland at the beginning of Oct.

In that panel, a range of music managers from across the EU: Sweden, Poland, UK, Iceland and Finland discussed how their role is changing, what skills and knowledge do managers need in the digital age and why does an artist still need a manager in 2018 when it’s becoming increasingly easy to DIY.  We also held a joint meeting with the IMPALA Board (EU association of indie labels) and a bilateral discussion about common issues facing us at European level including mergers and acquisitions in the music sector and the Copyright Directive.
