Midem Music Conference Cancels This Year's Edition

One of the most prominent international conferences in the music industry will not return in 2022


The conference was originally scheduled in Cannes from June 7 to 10, 2022.

On the event's website, the homepage reads, "We would like to thank you for your engagement and constant support of Midem. Due to the lasting pandemic and following a review of its activity, RX France has decided to no longer continue to organize the Midem event."

First reported by Music Business Worldwide, RX France, the company that usually organizes the expo, also announced that the Midem brand will be taken over by the city of Cannes.

A press statement reads, "RX France and the city of Cannes are in exclusive and advanced discussions for the latter to take over the Midem brand. More news on that will come in due course."

First held in 1967, the conference was one of the largest in the industry at one point, garnering 10,000 attendees in 2001. Unfortunately, attendance has lessened since, with its most recent in-person event in 2019, drawing around 5,000 attendees.

The 2020 and 2021 versions of the event were held online due to the global pandemic, and as of yet, there are no future plans for another Midem expo.
