The CNM is maintaining its presence at the Reeperbahn Festival, one which was initiated by Le Bureau Export 16 years ago, helping to promote the diversity of made-in-France music via concerts, showcases, networking events and conferences relating to this key territory.

In 2022, 17 artists and around 40 French professionals will be making the trip. It’s an opportunity to demonstrate the vitality and drive of French music by giving the artists a significant platform and allowing professionals to make new contacts through professional networking events.

With this mind, the CNM has organised a networking event, the French Artist Pitch Breakfast, which will give representatives of the French groups at the festival an opportunity to pitch them to a group of 60-odd international VIP guests (festival directors, agents, publishers, A&Rs, music supervisors etc).

This year at the conference, several French professionals will be taking part in panel discussions, including two representing the CNM :

Keychange artists and innovators

Also present will be artists and innovators from the Keychange international programme:

  • Anna Majidson
  • Bandit Bandit
  • Emily Gonneau
  • Glitter
  • Gwendolenn Sharp
  • Mathilde Neuville

These artists and rising, innovative professionals from within the French music sector have been selected by Keychange to take part in a number of festivals and international salons.

In fact, the CNM is one of 500 international organisations that have committed to working towards gender equality in the music industry. It is also part of the jury for the French strand of the Keychange programme, led by SACEM in partnership with the MaMA Festival & Convention. More information here.
