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.
