KEY WORLDWIDE MUSIC INDUSTRY & SYNC EVENTS LIST 2019


We’ve put together the most comprehensive list out there of key music industry events / conferences worldwide. Bookmark it now.

We’re constantly updating the list to make sure you know about the latest music industry events in each city. For smaller and more frequent events, be sure to stay updated with trade organisations such as AIM, ASCAP, A2IM, BMI and MPA (see a full list here). As not all dates have been announced yet, please refer to our 2018 list to get an idea of what’s to come.

Whilst this list primarily focuses on music industry events, we’ve also added some key gaming, advertising, media and film events.
