About MW:M21

Most Wanted: Music aims to start building the music and creative industries of tomorrow. The idea of boldly embracing CHANGE is at the heart of everything MW:M stands for – and in 2021, change is pushed to the fore. The music industry is rapidly reorganising itself, and MW:M believes that a fairer, more exciting industry awaits.

MW:M’s key objectives are designed to facilitate our attendees’ path through this change: to enable practical know-how transfer; to foster networking, connectivity, and information exchange; and to inspire new ideas and business models.

This is all done via a wide range of inspiring keynotesinterviews and debates, hands-on workshops and matchmaking events. These sessions are created to empower, and they deliver clear value to the creators and music businesses navigating the transforming industry.

MW:M21 will take place as a hybrid event – online, and onsite in Berlin, in compliance with all distancing and hygiene legislation. The programme includes interactive talks, interviews and workshops with experts and artists from all over the world, experimental networking formats, live performances and a virtual after-show party.

The conference called MW:M Convention is accompanied by the listen to berlin: Awards, the awards for remarkable achievements in the Berlin music scene, as well as the MW:M Satellites, a broad variety of partner events distributed around the entire city of Berlin, and the MW:M Live Showcase Festival.
