From the 22nd to the 26th of June 2021, Athens Music Week (AMW) will be back at Technopolis Athens, to offer insights around all facets of the music industry, through selected talks, workshops, seminars, showcases, and a grand live event.
How can Greek musicians make a name for themselves in Greece and abroad? How large is the loyal following of the Greek Hip-hop scene, and what are the latest trends in Greek music? Does gender balance exist in the music industry? What do Spotify, Bandcamp and Clubhouse have in common? How can you build a music career via Tik Tok? What are Copyrights, what are Royalties, how do they work, and what does blockchain technology have to do with them? Is virtual reality the future for concerts? And how does this relate to Fortnite? What is cultural management, and which opportunities can propel Greek artists into the international charts from the comfort of their own couch? Do music and reality tv competitions actually help the artists who participate in them? And how does a professional chef feature into all of this?
This year’s Athens Music Week conference will be focusing on all these topics and more, spanning all facets of the music industry, from recording and live gigs, to copyrights and the future of the music industry, to the current music trends.
Like every year, the AMW Conference will be hosting experienced and acclaimed representatives of the local as well as the international music sector, while market experts and insiders will be sharing essential tips & tricks in workshops, seminars and webinars, specifically designed for artists, students, amateurs and professionals.
At the same time, AMW will be presenting a rich showcase program featuring unique and exciting music from the best up-and-coming artists representing various genres and countries, while offering Greek participants the chance to create their own original audio-visual material, which will be broadcast during the festival.
Finally, subject to health conditions at the time, AMW Main Stage, a grand multifaceted music event, will be coming live on the main stage of Technopolis Athens, always in compliance to public health regulations and protocols.
All ΑΜW events will be free for the public, as a symbolic gesture of support to the music sector which has been hit especially hard by the pandemic worldwide. The full program of the AMW conference and showcase festival will be announced in May.
