About MW:M

TOGETHERNESS – DISTANT SOCIALISING, NOT SOCIAL DISTANCING

Most Wanted: Music 2020 enables practical know-how transfer, enhanced networking, idea exchange, and delivers new perspectives and business models through inspiring keynotes, high-tier interviews, heated panel discussions, tailor-made matchmaking sessions and hands-on workshops as well as uninhibited parties and live-performances.

We do this in an unprecedented, hybrid way. Across analog talks and digital attendance, offline workshops and online participation, real performances and virtual parties, attendees will forge vital and unexpected connections with the world’s music technology innovators and the Berlin music scene – onsite and online.

The Coronavirus crisis initiated a lot of conversation about the collective feeling of “us”. While we’re physically distanced from each other, we simultaneously feel a strong community spirit due to an unexpected increase in digital communication. We’re experiencing Distant Socialising rather than Social Distancing. This newly evolved form of TOGETHERNESS is the core theme of MW:M20.

MW:M20 embraces this TOGETHERNESS: it’s an opportunity for us to review, rethink and redefine the future music industry, together. All over the world, people are striving for social change. Campaigns are pushing for more diversity, new copyright laws, a fairer distribution of streaming revenues, and for a climate-friendly industry. Our new TOGETHERNESS is accelerating these changes, and it’s at the core of MW:M20.
