Waves Vienna Conference 2019

In September 2019 the Waves Vienna Music Conference, organized by Waves Vienna and Austrian Music Export, will take place for the ninth time. Hundreds of national and international music experts, organizers, label owners, bookers, and musicians will meet during the day for discussion and networking at Vienna’s WUK.

Moral duties of contributors, challenges of the Asian music market and women in Live Music Production

Each year we compile a conference program that is supposed to cover current topics in music industry. Among the topics of the Waves Vienna Music Conference 2019 are: A Pop-Up Session with Laibach’s Ivan Novak, How to Deal with Content of Dubious Performers, Challenges Entering Asian Music Markets, a presentation of the results of the CEEMID – Music Professional Survey and Women in Live Music Production.

We’re excited about having Ivan Novak of Slovenian retroavantgarde band Laibach to talk about their career out of a country with hardly any national structures equipped for reaching international audiences. The conference program will also address current issues in the music industry: Do content providers, like streaming platforms or radio stations, have the moral right or even an obligation to remove the repertoire of shady people? What are the challenges entering Asian music markets? How is the situation for women in live music production? Furthermore there will be presentations of new tools and studies, as the results of the CEEMID Music Professional Survey for 2019, and a lot of networking sessions and speed meetings with international representatives of the music industry.

Focus countries 2019: Sweden and Hungary

True to the motto “East meets West”, the focus this year is once again on two partner countries.
