PrimaveraPro is a global meeting for the music industry of today. During the year it opens a window on the news and challenges of an industry that is in constant evolution, and during the week of Primavera Sound, this commitment culminates in the celebration of the now traditional yearly international meeting in Barcelona. For 5 days the present and future of the music business are debated with the best-known experts in the field, dozens of newcomer bands and all the tools necessary for the professionals from all around the world who attend the meeting.
Thanks to its position as a strategic point of cultural exchange between Europe, North America and the Latin American countries and in 2015 had over 2700 accredited professionals (half of whom were international), with almost 100 activities and 76 showcases, PrimaveraPro has become the ideal setting for the analysis of the state of the industry calmly and with perspective, to understand what is going on and what is in store for the future.
It is, in short, where music meets.
PrimaveraPro 2016, the seventh edition, will take place from 1st to 5th June.
For 5 days the meeting will host a multitude of activities open to all accredited professionals and which go from debates to networking sessions and include conferences, workshops, mentoring sessions, showcases and receptions consistently aimed at expanding knowledge of the sector and at contributing to the transformation of the same.
As well as its central programme, PrimaveraPro also hosts the Investment Forum in the Music Business PrimaveraPro Startups, as well as the International Congresses that it organises since 2015 together with some of the main organisations of the sector: such as the Concert Venues and Independent Labels organisations.
Innovate, Think, Connect, Engage, Play, Build, Lawyer Up, and Experience are the concepts that provide the backbone of the discursive content of the PrimaveraPro activities that at the same time are a declaration of intent
PrimaveraPro 2016 divides its activities into two fields of action:
DAYPRO CONFERENCE: The centre of daytime operations, located in the CCCB and the MACBA – both in the centre of Barcelona-, as well as hosting all the talks, workshops and proposals, also opens the participating emerging bands participating in PrimaveraPro with a free daytime stage. This will take place from Wednesday 1st to Friday 3rd June, from 9 in the morning until 6 in the evening.
NIGHTPRO: PrimaveraPro also has its place in the Primavera Sound programme in Parc del Fòrum with its own stage, open to the festival audience, on which all the bands participating in the meeting will play and with the NightPro area, that is exclusive for PrimaveraPro accredited professionals and is the perfect place to chill out and meet up with people by the Mediterranean with a restaurant area, discounts at the bar and seawater swimming pools.
