Most Wanted: Music 2020 – The Hybrid Music Conference in Berlin
From 3 to 5 November, Most Wanted: Music (MW:M) will take place as a hybrid music conference - both online on the net, and offline in Berlin. The themes of this year’s MW:M convention, which has the motto #Togetherness, include the innovative use and development of digital tools, the economic stagnation of the live music industry, and the growing need for distant socialising in times of social distancing. The 7th edition of MW:M offers interactive talks, digital and analogue workshops, performances, live interviews and chats as well as online interactive networking formats to bring the worldwide music industry together even in the time of coronavirus. The MW:M Convention kicks off on the evening of 3 November with the listen to berlin: Awards, which celebrates courageous ideas, innovative players, as well as commitment and attitude in the music industry. At the end of the event on 5 November, there’s a welcome return of something we’ve had to do without during the pandemic: live music. MW:M Live will present auditions of international newcomer acts to an invited audience of industry experts, and for fans watching online on YouTube. Visitors on site are warmly welcome and will find a safe setting, adapted to all necessary hygiene and distance standards. The MW:M conference itself will also be live streamed via several online channels.
