Night Life Economy, Live Lunches and Jazz

January 25 2018

9 New Sessions

Today we’re adding 9 sessions to our Conference Programme where we’ll discuss Keychange, why several cities install Night Mayors and how cities could manage and exploit their musical talents. We strongly believe that a lot of this year’s programme can lead up to several good conversations – not only at by:Larm – but also in the society and the music industry in general. 

Join the discussion and get your tickets here.

Here are our new additions:
50:50 – What’s in it For Me? (ENG)

One of them is Keychange, a pioneering European scheme aiming for a 50:50 gender balance across their conference and festival stages by 2022. Learn about how diversity can benefit your business, and why ethics and profitability don’t have to be opposed to each other.

Lighting up the Night Time Economy (ENG)

What happens in the dark stays in the dark? Definitely not! It is time to shine a light on the Night Time Economy. What impact does the Night Time Economy have on cities? How can you support and preserve it? Why do more and more cities install Night Mayors, and what are the benefits of that?

The Nordic Live Scene: A Panorama (ENG)
Presented by Music Norway & by:Larm
This panel will discuss opportunities and trends in the Nordic live scene. Collaborations between Nordic countries are paving the way to building a stronger live industry, and the larger booking agencies are buying themselves into all the Nordic countries. How will these developments impact on Nordic music festivals and international booking in the future?

The Rise of Music Cities (ENG)
Presented by Sound Diplomacy
Music makes cities, towns and places better. All cities have musical talent, from the streets to the arenas, but few cities understand how to plan, manage, develop and ultimately, exploit this talent. To accomplish this, cities, towns, regions and places need music policies. In this session, Sound Diplomacy will give an introduction to the Music Cities movement and the importance and benefits of music policies in places.
