The Focus Session in German language on 2 Sep starting at 4 pm on our digital conference streaming platform, will again have a packed 3-hour program to you on a specific and relevant topic of the music industry: The Future of Music Journalism in Germany

In several talks music journalists and media experts will discuss the acute, current and expected working realities of music journalism in Germany.

What have the Corona months changed? Where does the enthusiasm for audio formats like podcasts come from? Why are the public broadcasters increasingly cutting cultural journalism from their programmes? Is it still possible to earn money with music journalism? How does music journalism work on YouTube, Twitter, Instagram or TikTok? How diverse has music journalism become?
