Because this year’s motto is CHANGE.

We all long for CHANGE. Years and years we felt, sensed, talked about CHANGE. We starved for CHANGE. But then again, there was doubt: Where can I start? What can I contribute? What if I fail?

The recent Covid crisis shed light to the possibility of rapid and profound CHANGE. Crises are able to disrupt our daily lives, work and environment. That CHANGED the perspective for many of us.

We believe CHANGE is good. And CHANGE is always now.

CHANGE as in…

CHANGE as in TRANSFORM, IMPACT and EXPERIENCE. Let’s make CHANGE happen – together, via re-invention, disruption, and discussion. Let us UNITE to grow new ecosystems, create a greener industry, build diverse communities and combine forces to actively CHANGE our society and economy.


This is the programme scheme of MW:M21:

Lead Topic: Change

Maintracks Impact Transform Experience
Act Business in Motion Green Tomorrow Music Mañana
Unite Ecosystems We are the Force Next Community

The Maintracks will build the discourse part of the conference, whereas Act focuses on current developments in music and music business, United features new ways of collaboration and Grow examines new ways of funding and empowerment.
