Every pop career starts at the base – in clubs, rehearsal spaces, studios. That's why it's all the more important to start here with a targeted promotion. But how up-to-date and sustainable are the promotional structures in this country, and what needs to be done better by who and where? In cooperation with the Initiative Musik GmbH, the Bundesverband Popularmusik e.V. (Federal Association for Popular Music) is organizing a federal conference on pop promotion that will find answers to these questions: the Pop Summit 2020 on January 21 and 22, 2020 at the IHK Cologne.
As partners, we co-organise the conference and, together with actors from politics and administration, associations and institutions, companies in the music industry as well as artists and independent pop promoters, we want to depict the status quo of pop music promotion in Germany, as well as to develop scenarios on how promotion should be organized under the current conditions.
