THE CONFERENCE

konferanseprogram er komplett.png

More than 50% of the music conference will be sessions in English. We are really proud of presenting a programme where there will be talks and panels in a broad range of topics. We dare to say that anyone involved in the music business will have something to learn!

The intention of this year's conference is to highlight the importance of music for people and society. We all associate different soundtracks with specific events of our life. Whenever we hear our favourite tune a powerful cocktail of memories and feelings are set in motion. Music is for everyone, everywhere - a human universal, more powerful than language, and by many seen as something that is partially defining their lives.
At this years festival we ask the question: 'Why Music?' 

 

Social events

There will be a lot of social events, unofficial showcases and opportunities to visit Mount Fløien and much more of what Bergen has to offer in addition to the music scene.

All info will be sent out to registered delegates prior to the festival.
