We hope you can make it to Cannes, February 1-4. But even if you can't, you can still join in! Here's how...
Last year’s Midem was our most social ever, with nearly 20,000 Twitter mentions in four days. This year will be better still — oh, yes! — as we bring you all the hottest action from Cannes, in real time. Here’s how…
- midemblog will be the hub of our live coverage February 1-4, with conference reports, key conference videos, interviews and a daily, crowdsourced wrap of midem concert highlights. MusicAlly‘s Stuart Dredge will provide daily business wraps, to be sure you don’t miss a trick
- Our YouTube channel will be home to all manner of fantastic content: Midem Talks, featuring will.i.am, Rita Ora, Jean Michel Jarre and more, will be livestreamed there, 16.00-19.00 CET, February 1-3 inclusive. Media partners Billboard, Music Week, Hypebot, Challenges & Le Nouvel Obs will also be hosting the livestreams. These sessions, and many more, will be available in full, on-demand, a few hours after they end. And the brand new Midem Daily News show will resume each day’s highlights in just a few minutes
- Twitter will once again be abuzz, with both our own livetweets & other key updates via @midem, and through the #midem hashtag, to which you can add #festival for concert tweets, and #talks for our Midem Talks plenary sessions February 1-4
- We’ll also be regularly updating our Facebook page; and all of the above content will be available in our brand new midem mobile app, which also features a host of handy show info, including the new Master Guide to Cannes: perfect if you’re looking for a bar or restaurant!
So whether you can make it to Cannes or not, Midem 2014 will be truly unmissable. Enjoy!
