MIDEM’s Direct2Fan Camp is slated to run from Jan. 26-29, 2013 in Cannes. The program of discussions and workshops allows artists and industry personnel to mentor independent artists in the areas of distribution, retail, publishing, artist management and promotion.
Artists confirmed for the event’s Artists Speak to Artists sessions include Mark Hoppus of rock band Blink-182, singer-songwriter Julia Nunes and Paul Miller (aka DJ Spooky).
“Direct-to-fan is an increasingly effective tool for independent artists, labels, publishers, managers, marketers, and others in the music industry,” said Bruno Crolot, Reed MIDEM Director of Music Markets. “This rapidly developing strategy is being adopted by those looking to build and leverage a fan community. MIDEM’s Direct2Fan Camp is the place to find out how this vector can accelerate an artist’s career.”
