MaMA Festival – Oct 15-17, Paris

It’s only the 5th Parisian edition of MaMA, but the event can already be proud to have reached its main goal to gather French and international professionals from the music industry in the heart of Paris. With more professionals attending these meetings and public going to the gigs, MaMA recorded in 2013 a significant attendance increase that included a 1/3 growth in international attendees. This year, MaMA is back for three days and will be offering more than 100 concerts and about 50 conferences and special meetings from October 15th to 17th.

MaMA welcomes French and international music professionals to be part of the future of the music industry throughout 3 days of conferences, networking and acts in the friendly red light 18th district of Paris, heartland of music since two centuries. Approximately 200 French and international speakers will be present on different stages within the 18th arrondissement and will debate the music industry’s current vital issues and propose and discuss future considerations. By night, 100 acts take place in 20 emblematic venues and unusual places (bars, art galleries, cabarets, theaters) of Pigalle and Montmartre. The festival line-up includes artists like Cascadeur (FR), Natas Loves You (LU), Lonely The Brave (UK), White+ (CAN), Bibi Tanga (FR), Feloche (FR), Kid Karate (IE), We Are Wolves (CAN), Kadebostany (CH), Go Go Berlin (DK) and many more.
