MAIN HALL

Rap is full of distinctive personalities, or rather their music identities, nicks and masks. With the topics and attitudes that the rap confidence brings, intransigence and eccentricity are almost inevitable. After all, how many rappers do you know that perform under their regular name? We will discuss how a rap identity originates, what are its rules or when it’s the right time to change it.

Whether these are tools for the creators, social networks, VR, AR or the whole metaverse – there’s no busier place than in the world that doesn’t let itself be bound by traditional structures. Where are the opportunities, where to look and, mainly, what to expect?

At what level does it actually make sense for Czech artists to start working with an agent and what is the ideal workflow? How not to end up in 102nd place in the agent’s roster? And finally, are there actually any free slots left for up-and-coming artists at international festivals in 2022? Hopefully a beneficial 45 Minute long panel for artists and managers who want to find out what it is that booking agents have in mind when taking on new acts.

Hosted by: Martin Šolc

 

► 15:15 – 16:15 HOW WILL THE ELECTIONS CHANGE THE APPROACH OF THE STATE TO LIVE MUSIC AND HOW WILL THE NEW GOVERNMENT DEALT WITH IMPACTS OF THE PANDEMI IN THIES SECTOR? (CZ)

Recent elections have fundamentally changed the balance of political powers in the Czech Republic. This change will without a doubt also affect the relationship of the state with live music. What can music events expect when it comes to the state’s approach? What lessons will the government learn from the last 18 months? What can live music as one of the most affected fields expect from the National Recovery Plan? And will the sharp division between subsidized culture and culture that – under normal circumstances – can make do without state subsidies still remain? For a discussion of these and other questions, the association of music festivals FESTAS has invited three representatives of the political parties which will form the next government coalition, as they took part in the formulating of their party programs for culture.

Hosted by Marek Vohralík (FESTAS)

Speakers: Martin Baxa (ODS), Ondřej Chrast (Piráti)
