Nicolas Bonard, CEO of Montreux Jazz Festival Media Ventures, will be sharing his strategies for coping with the huge negative impact of Corona on large-scale open air and indoor events. And given that we now have no choice but to search for positives as we start to think about rebuilding an aspect of our lives that we all assumed would always be there,
The global live music festival industry was until very recently a multi-million dollar earner, based around a network of artists. event planners, stage decorators, technicians, agents, bookers, and graphic designers, alongside countless other talented and dedicated people, all of whom now find themselves with too much free time. What can the music industry's other sectors, the ones that historically benefitted from that globe-straddling network, do to help protect talent that will otherwise eventually disappear? ADE Pro Online will be hosting a conversation featuring agents, promoters and managers, where the key topics will be how to save the global live scene, what its future shape could and should be, what the positive takeaways might eventually be from the live shutdown, and what sort of live scene we really want to see emerging from the current crisis in the months and years ahead.
