The festival, which is expecting about 60 Artists from 15 nationalities and 15,000 visitors, is inviting all industry music professionals to meet their peers from France and Europe to see the best new and upcoming gigs and to meet a French audience. UK bands, such as Rodeo Massacre and Z-Star, who will be present at the Festival, will also be able to debate and ask their peers questions relating to the future of the music industry professions.
MaMA is a gateway to the French music market as well as being a genuinely international platform. It offers a rare opportunity for members to talk to their peers overseas, discuss issues relating to the future of the music industry, and to network with music companies from different countries. By joining forces with our French counterparts, we’re demonstrating our commitment to those songwriters and composers whose careers are expanding into countries outside the UK – especially given the opportunities today for artists to reach audiences around the world
