BIME is the first European conference and festival dedicated to music and new technologies, with a special focus on opening up the Latin and South American market. It successfully develops new networking opportunities between music industry representatives and buyers within gaming, sync, film & TV, advertising, festivals and the Latin and South American festival and brand market.
BIME will give you access to over 100 high profile speakers from over 20 countries, many of which are new to Europe’s music conference scene.
BIME brought over 20 Latin and South American Festival Buyers to Bilbao last year, including Lollapalooza Chile, Estereo Picnic, SXSW, LAMC, Ocesa, Pop Art, Rock Al Parque and Circulart. Is the most direct and cost effective opportunity to access and develop greater networks in Latin and South America.
In the past editions, some of the attendees to the showcases were representatives of international festivals such as Fuji Rock, Sonar, Summersonic, Osheaga, Eurosonic Noordeslag, Roskilde, record labels such as Sony Music, BMG, The Orchard, Believe, Omnifone.
BIME will host the Spanish Festivals Congress, featuring over 60 buyers from the domestic festival market.
These are some of the 40 acts from over 20 countries who have been selected on the last two editions: London Grammar, The Coup, We Were Evergreen, The Asteroids Galaxy Tour, The Excitements, Gin Ga, The Ringo Jets, Birth of Joy, Shannon Saunders.
These concerts will be part of the BIME Pro programme, on Wednesday 28th, Thursday 29th and Friday 30th of October 2015, and very few activities will be scheduled at the same time. The showcases will be held in two of the most emblematic Bilbao venues: Sala Azkena and Kafe Antzokia. The BEC! will also host performances during the three days professional conferences.
The aim of BIME is to give the bands and artists the most exposure possible to the professional attendees. After their showcases in BIME, the vast majority of the groups closed very promising deals.
