The five day event is not only a commercial platform but a progressive amplifier for music culture itself - this is emphasized not by the festival programme alone, a stroll over the expo resembles a walk through the cultural diversity of the globe.
Musicians, agents, record labels - you name it - gather together to check out new talent and share music. Intense meetings and conferences by day, and by night an equally intense schedule of gigs and showcases. A weird and wonderful selection of music.
This year’s event boasted more than 2,600 attendees from over 90 countries; and over 60 acts with 303 musicians from 46 countries. Simply put, it’s a pretty big deal.
60 artists, 7 stages and more than 2600 music pros from 90 countries: The World Music Expo is the biggest meeting of the global pop scene.
