With or without a label?

How can a music label help musicians in their careers? What’s in the power of a label? On the contrary, what does the artist himself have to work on? How to distribute? And what about music in movies, series, commercials, or games? Speakers in the panel are Petr Ostrouchov (Animal Music), David Landštof (Tranzistor), and Shina (Slnko Records).

Rap at the top: Czech rap in 2020

In recent years, rap has become a dominant genre in the Czech Republic, which is proved on sales charts as well. What does the current Czech rap scene look like and what trends will set the direction? Jakub Šíma’s (Radio Wave, Full Moon Magazine) guests will be Hugo Toxxx – Veteran of the Czech rap scene and the founder of Hypno 808 label, who is experimenting in his work and looking for new sounds. He invited a bunch of young producers and rappers to host on his last years’ album 1000, for which he received not only enthusiastic responses but also an Anděl award. Annet X, a singer who can do much more than intelligent pop. Her new album is produced by multitalented Radimo (ex Champion Sound) with his worldwide experiences, and fans are already looking forward to the fusion of rap and pop.  Last but not least, Daniel Nádler, a music enthusiast who decided to finish his music management studies in London to establish the music label Kolektiv X in the Czech Republic. All this because he sees the massive potential in the scene.

How did the coronavirus crisis affect the booking of artists?

No other sector in the creative industries suffers as hard as touring. The post-covid world of concerts and festivals will never be the same – what are the new opportunities for promoters, agents, and artists? Do virtual reality concerts and live streams offer an attractive alternative for fans and a good business model for creators? How will the income of artists and the responsibilities of music professionals change? Will the path to and from the crisis be in monopolies or decentralization? This panel with international agents and promoters will focus mainly on what the world of booking will look like in the next ten years and what we can prepare for together.
