BERLIN – MADRID – ACCRA
“Just” music or is this business?
Throughout the months of October and November this year, the international workshop program “Buzz Meets Biz” is taking place in Germany, Spain, and Ghana, bringing together young music professionals from the mentioned nations plus the UK. Not only active artists but also promoters, bloggers, label owners, and other professionals in the musical field are involved, covering all kinds of modern genres. Through networking, sharing knowledge and experiences, and participating in educative workshops, these young creatives will be inspired and taught to take confident and smart steps in the tough world of show biz.
PART 1 – BERLIN, GERMANY
October 11 – 19, 2017
The first part of the mobility program took place in Berlin. The main focus of this session was the economic side of music: revenues, licensing, copyright, distribution, etc.
Organisers of the Buzz Meets Biz Berlin were Andrea Goetzke and Sebastian Hoffmann of Music Pool Berlin in cooperation with: iRights, Fundación SGAE, Cooperación Española, Akwaaba Music, Goethe-Institut and the Alliance Française Accra. The programme is co-funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union and Goethe-Institut Ghana.

Starting #BuzzMeetsBiz. First stop: Berlin. Seems is going to be one of the best experiences ever!
