TICKET LINECHECK 2018 | NOVEMBER 23rd | DAY 2

7. THE INTERNATIONAL AGENTS’ INTERVIEW

WHEN: 10:30 – 11:15
WHERE: BASE SPAZIO C

SPEAKERS: CLEMENTINE BUNEL – ROB ZIFARELLI

The booking of the international live music market is mainly handled by a relatively small number of major agencies. The American powerhouse Paradigm and its affiliates like Coda are among them when it comes to booking talent all over the world.
Two of their leading agents respond to questions about how the live market is organized and evolving, and the role of international agents, promoters, sub-agents and festivals. Furthermore, how are bands being signed and what do they need to bring to the table, besides great music? How are artists being developed once signed? And finally: what is it like to work in Italy?

6. STRATEGIC INTERNATIONAL MANAGEMENT

WHEN: 11:00 – 11:45
WHERE: BASE SPAZIO B

SPEAKERS: FEEDY FRIZZI – ANDRIES VAN WIEREN

Spend all your time and money trying to convince a UK/US-centered label, the ‘international’ media outlets, playlist people and sync folks? Or strategize differently, investing all you can on your neighboring country or what some would call a “B” or exotic “C-market”? What does the artist need to bring in? There’re pros and cons, so find out what might be right for you, how to make the right choices in order to persist in an almost endlessly competitive international music environment.

5. FESTIVALS AND BRANDING, BY ITALIAN MUSIC FESTIVALS

WHEN: 11:30 – 12:15
WHERE: BASE SPAZIO B

SPEAKERS: ANTONIO FATINI – DAMIR IVIC

Brands are increasingly active in the festival world, investing ever greater resources in music events. But how does a brand choose who to get involved with? What does a festival need to do in order to “persuade” a brand to invest in their event? How do the agencies that handle budgets for big international names work? We get into it with industry experts.

4. FESTIVAL BOOKING: PUT IT ALL ON THE HEADLINERS?

WHEN: 16:30 – 17:30
WHERE: BASE SPAZIO B

SPEAKERS: MAXMILIANO BUCCI – JASON MAYALL – BOB VAN HEUR – RITA ZAPPADOR

Festivals are in a central position to break new talent, hence have a responsibility for developing their own tomorrows headliners and courageously endorse new art. Though, is that rather romantic idea at all sustainable in nowadays competitive live music industry? Why do people buy tickets for a festival? Just to see their all time fave or really to discover their future favourite artist in a curated lineup full of artistic integrity?
A special view on the Italian festival landscape reveals cultural differences and similarities to international events.

3. WHY ALWAYS THE DIRTY CLUB? MUSIC IN THE ARTS AND CROSSOVER WORLD

WHEN: 15:30 – 16:15
WHERE: BASE SPAZIO C

SPEAKERS: DANIELA CATTANEO – CARLO “JARNO” GARRÈ – SARAH ROGERS – CIRO ROMANO

Music in museums, exhibitions, pop up venues, centres of the performing arts, public theatres: more experimental music, from special multi arts performances and rather arty-farty music seems to live in those spaces that provide infrastructure and funding. Then there’s what’s sitting in between the chairs: Jazz seems to break off its standards and particularly neo-classic enjoys lately wider attention. But how does that apparently parallel world (to the cruel neo liberal pop market) work? Who are the players and what are the market’s logics? What do programmers look for and what the timings?

2. RADIO EVOLUTION: TECHNOLOGICAL DEVELOPMENT AND FUTURE PROSPECTS

WHEN: 16:30 – 17:30
WHERE: BASE SPAZIO C

SPEAKERS: ANGELO BAIGUINIE – UGENIO LA TEANA – ENZO MAZZA

“It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent. It is the one that is most adaptable to change”. Darwin’s theory is also reflected in the world of media and surely radio is able to adapt to the incredible social and technological changes of the last few decades. We’ll discuss this with Enzo Mazza, CEO FIMI, Eugenio Lateana and Angelo Baiguini, Research and Development Manager and Presenter of RTL 102.5 respectively.

1. FROM PAGANINI TO TALENTS: HOW DID THE ARTIST’S MANAGEMENT DEVELOPED

WHEN: 18:00 – 20.00
WHERE: BASE SPAZIO C

SPEAKERS BELOW

During the second edition of the Milano Music Week, Assomusica will introduce one of the new features of this year’s programme: a panel entirely dedicated to the figure of the music manager.

A long journey through the history of this profession starting from the historical and iconic example that has been the figure of Niccolò Paganini. The composer, besides being the first “star” of instrumental music, was also the first great music manager as he wisely navigated his own business. Ever since, promoters have been availing themselves of ever more sophisticated strategies which rely on the most powerful tools technology has to offer. During the workshop, new and veteran promoters will meet and share their passion and experience, respectively. Not only a meeting for insiders, but also a chance for everyone to retrace in an original way the history and the development of a profession that is the backbone of every show today.
