We are Music Cities Events. We are pioneers in exploring how music enhances economic development, creates jobs and drives tourism, building leading global cities.
Cities that invest in music are growing all over the world, from Toronto to Guangzhou, Bogota to London. Music Cities Events brings together the top global minds from municipalities, regions, academia, NGOs, the private sector and the music industry. Connecting cities and sharing best practices, we debate and introduce new thinking, action and structure to develop vibrant sustainable places.
We’ve so far organised 23 Music Cities Events, with a total of 3,900+ delegates from 290+ cities, 55+ countries and 6 continents attending. Our events include:
