MUSIC CONFERENCE
10 - 12 NOVEMBER 2016
ROCKHAL - ESCH / ALZETTE (LUX)

Join us for the 9th edition of the Sonic Visions Music Conference

Last year more than 300 music professionals, artists and musicians from all over Europe met and shared ideas & inspiration during the 3 days conference. 

The 2016 edition awaits you with a series of hands-on workshopstheme-oriented panels with high-profile speakers and a bunch of networking opportunities where artists and (future) music professionals can find the information they need to push their project further. The topics, which are mostly treated from a DIY and artist point of view, will focus on creativity, technology, popular music education, digital media, sync & advertising opportunities for musicians or the live music markets in Germany, France and Belgium, to name but a few. As Rockhal and Rocklab are working in several networks on a European level, the conference will see a lot of high profile international music professionals coming (again) to Luxembourg this year.

Check out this year’s program:

Thursday 10 November
Friday 11 November
Saturday 12 November

Conference tickets are online now. Get yours HERE!

Quotes

I had an excellent time at the event, saw some great music and met some really interesting people. I thought Rockhal was a superb venue with state-of-the-art sound and lighting in each of the 3 indoor spaces. The panels and seminars were genuinely thought provoking and inspiring, helping us all find our way through this fast-moving, mutating music industry.
Vic Galloway (BBC Radio Scotland)
(...) a great place to exchange opinions, meet new faces, hear new music …and all that in an intimate friendly atmosphere.
Michael Bisping (Managing Director – A.S.S. Concerts)
Sonic Visions helped me discover acts and bands from a musical region that I was not familiar with. Left for home with a bag of cold coins and good new contacts that I am sure will shine a light on me for my coming commercial projects.
Jesper Gadeberg (sync supervisor – www.musicstylist.com)
Sonic Visions is a fantastic event, lots of great international delegates in the perfect surroundings. The Rockhal is really doing a great job of helping to build a thriving, vibrant music scene in Luxembourg and every year I see more and more interesting artists coming out of the country.
Michael Roe (Artist Manager & European Label Manager – Sargent House)
It is necessary that there are music conferences like Sonic Visions, so that musicians get the chance to learn more about the music industry. Nowadays its more important than ever to get detailed information, because finding your own way as a band or solo artist can only base on knowledge. Also, the international and intercultural approach of the conference is very special - good for Luxembourg, good for the Greater Region!
David Maier (Artistic Director Worms: Jazz and Joy)
Once again Sonic Vision offered a wide range of quality lectures and many opportunities for bands, venues, managers and bookers to meet. I would advice any (emerging) band to follow those lectures and to pay close attention to the tools developed by Rocklab. Being an artist is a tough job and those tools can only make their life easier.
François-Xavier Kernkamp (Manager - SoundGoku)
