It was an exceptional last Midem by Night ! Our 3 last finalists from the Midem Artist Accelerator programme took to Stage 1 throughout the night with performances from Geoffroy, Rendez-Vous, Kiddy Smile and Acid Arab. Meanwhile, on Stage 2, Taiwan Beats showcased The Mixer, The Chairman, and DJ Questionmark.

In the Palais des Festivals, Man Doki and the Soulmates played to an enthusiastic house of spectators and fans. The Man Doki band included legendary artists including Leslie Mandoki, John Helliwell of Supertramp, Chris Thompson of Manfred Mann’s Earthband, saxophonist Klaus Doldinger and Nick Van Eede of Cutting Crew.

The band also included Melanie C, formerly known as Sporty Spice from the Spice Girls!
