On Thursday the 17th of October, Technopol, the SACEM and Bureau Export will present for the first time the French Electronic Lab at De Balie.
Conferences, showcases and speed meetings : an emphasis will be put on the presenting the French electronic music ecosystem via its actors (artists, labels, bookers) and its distributors (clubs & festivals). A day for exchanges, information and meeting, the venue will highlight the dynamism of the current French scene.
France has always been a rich and innovating country when it comes to electronic music.
The land of festivals, clubs, underground raves, not to forget the free parties, France offers a large diversity of actors, music and events. The country is now more than ever a breeding ground of talented creators, which allows the French scene to shine internationally. Electronic music is in fact the directory which exports the best abroad.
During the last 10 years, new actors have emerged and have given a new face and a new development to electronic music. Incidentally this trend has been confirmed by two major studies published in 2016 by SACEM and in 2017 by Shotgun and Technopol.
The goal of the French Electronic Lab is to give an outline of electronic music in France and its strengths, during panels, in English, all based around the same theme : How to work with the French market? Throughout the day, we will give the necessary tools to professionals to develop a long-lasting relationship with the principal figures of this country.
The French Electronic Lab will be open to everyone and will take place in the cultural venue De Balie from 12pm until 7pm.
