Sometimes top artists seem to just fall out of the sky: suddenly they’re there, hit after hit, although often, there’s a clever marketing strategy behind it. Your music can be so good, in times of oversupply it is very important to stand out from the crowd. Everything starts with a good track, but talent alone doesn’t get you anywhere. Without promotion no publicity, without publicity no fans, without fans no gigs nor buyers of your tracks. Meet with one of our pros for advice

Between 10-12am there’s an opportunity to claim a spot at the registration desk for the Promopitches with a professional. The registration desk is located on the first floor of the Compagnie Theater. Please come early to secure your spot! At ADE Sound Lab we host Promopitch sessions from Thursday through Saturday. Don’t miss out on this opportunity, but please know this session isn't aimed at getting demo advice, for that you need to check the demopitches we host every day.

Promopitch registration (limited capacity) is only possible with an ADE Sound Lab wristband.
