15 & 16 Octobre 2010 - Paris 18ème - A gateway to the French Music industry market, the best place to meet key players in Europe. Live, international meetings, conferences, workshop, talks.


After the success of the first MaMA edition in Bourges, we were told : « What about Paris ? It would be a better place for the MaMA, as it is at the center of Europe. » So we came to Paris. We even came at the center of Paris, at the center of our Paris. The one of popular musics, of musicians and nightlife.

MaMA will take over the boulevards down Montmartre on the 15th and 16th October 2010. Where can we find in France (and even in Europe) such a concentration of concert halls: la Cigale, l'Élysée-Montmartre, les Trois Baudets, la Boule Noire, le Divan du Monde... Everyone working in the music industry regularly stride along this red light street on the even side and go up to the Abbesses in Montmartre to finish, or start, the night.

We will all be at home, artists, producers, managers and people from the music industry, owners of concert halls and festivals programmers, associations and public sector. Everyone at home, whether you are French or from a foreign country.

MaMA will welcome you in this village made of mythical venues and friendly bars. We will all meet here for two days of concerts, foundations and deals, to think, discover, build (and also conclude, sign and buy). We have two days to draw all together the future of our work, our professional field and our music industry. Even if our cultures, languages, point of view, priorities, experiences or visions are different, we all have in common this passion for music. So let's all meet at the north of Paris, which will be our center for two days.
