France is the fifth largest market in the world and the third in Europe behind Great Britain and Germany. Surprisingly, there was no cross-sector platform in France that combined networking and showcases as in other European countries (The Great Escape – UK, Eurosonic – NL…) or in international places (SXSW – USA, Canadian Music Week – Canada…).
MaMA is a music festival and convention based in Paris for the international music industry actors. This event offers a gateway to the French music market. MaMA is the first place to meet and exchange for all the music industry sector : majors or independents, producers and promoters, venues and festivals, bookers and agents, record companies, publishers, promotion companies, media … And obviously artists.
Program features : live acts, international meetings, conferences, workshops, talks, speed-meetings, networking lunches and drinks… In a unique and friendly atmosphere as MaMA takes place in Paris, in the red-light district – Pigalle and Montmartre -, heartland of music.
And as it is about music, more than 120 concerts will take place during the 3 days, in the heart of Paris. Venues include LA CIGALE, LA BOULE NOIRE, LA MACHINE DU MOULIN ROUGE, BACKSTAGE BY THE MILL, LE BUS PALLADIUM, LES TROIS BAUDETS, LE CARMEN, THEATRE DE L’ATALANTE…
10 emblematic venues of the red light district of Paris, all very close to each other, for you to wander from one show to another, discover new music and enjoy the thrilling energy of Pigalle and Montmartre.
A beautiful mix of French and international artists, established or new comers, rock, pop, electronic, folk, hip-hop, and pretty much every other genre.
