Fringe to bring more live shows to Midem

One of the complaints made about Midem in recent years was the drop in live shows. The good news is that Midem 2011 has started a new sidebar for younger or lesser-known acts. 21 groups drawn from Canada, Germany, France, Austria, the United States, Russia, Spain and Britain, will perform live between January 23 and January 25, giving MIDEM delegates the opportunity to discover new ‘underground’ acoustic talent without having to leave MIDEM’s venue, the Palais des Festivals in Cannes. All groups will appear for a second series of evening gigs at one of the three Cannes venues which are also hosting the Fringe – Morrison’s Irish Pub, The Lounge and The Quay’s Irish Pub.

“Following the success of the Fringe programme last year, MIDEM 2011 will provide new talent with exposure to music executives both during the day and at night. By bringing the Fringe into the Palais des Festivals, MIDEM underlines that the creation of music and the development of new talent are at the heart of what the event stands for,” says Dominique Leguern, Director of MIDEM.
