PARIS (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — This year will mark the second annual installment of Midemtalent, MIDEM's artist development forum. In addition to the lineup of performers slated for MidemTalent, this year's event will feature a number of seminars that explore different aspects of artist development in the rapidly changing industry.
MidemTalent: Artist Development – Is the super-acts model sustainable?
For years, the music business value chain has mostly relied on the model of highly profitable 'super acts', whose success has allowed the development of all other new or middle-tier artists. Is this business model still sustainable in today's new music environment? If yes, how to best develop it and provide the conditions to create the 'super acts' of tomorrow? If unsure, what are the alternative models that need to be explored.
