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!
