Future Digital Topics

Since 2009, the Popakademie has been an international meeting point for digital music business during the annual Future Music Camps. The FMC offers a platform for exchange between students and graduates of the Popakademie, students from other universities, musicians and companies.

Initially the first bar camp of the music industry, the FMC has developed into a modern, two-pronged conference for leaders and emerging talent from the creative industries. On the one hand, there will be lectures and talks by renowned speakers on music business topics. On the other there are open sessions that shed light on current topics in the creative industry and new career paths that have emerged through digitalisation within the branch.

Future Music Camp 2022

From 19 to 20 May 2022, the twelfth Future Music Camp will take place on-site and as a digital event. The content focus of the curated part of the Future Music Camp 2022 revolves around Artist & Creator Economies.

What does the term Creator Economy mean for artists and the music industry? What innovative tools and platforms have developed during the pandemic to help artists build communities or find new ways to monetise? We talk about the latest developments around Web 3.0 and discuss what opportunities NFTs or the Metaverse offer for artists. We present innovative tools to find new target groups or pitching strategies in marketing.

We discuss the future of the digital music industry from different perspectives: Artists, labels, management and research.
