Eventbrite Monkey Brain is an integrative meeting with all kinds of workshops, round tables, networking activities, mini-showcases and public interviews where any professional or accredited musician can participate as a real active agent, hobnobbing with promoters, agents, journalists, labels, artists and guests international. This year’s Professional Meetings will also feature an important cast of professionals from Latin America with whom it seeks to strengthen ties between the music industries of Europe and those on the other side of the Atlantic.
2017 saw the arrival of the Innovation Network of European Showcases (INES), a platform created by eight European showcase festivals and the German startup Gigmit, thanks to funds from the European Creative program of the European Union. On the other hand, this year will increase the share of European guests through the various activities sponsored by INES – Innovation Network of European Showcases and its professional mobility program INES # pro. Meetings and networking will be held over the weekend, with the presence of professionals from different parts of Europe.
Last year, the Eventbrite Monkey Brain offer brought together more than 400 attendees at Espacio Santa Clara, headquarters since 2016. As usual, Eventbrite Monkey Brain will be held in parallel with Monkey Week from November 22nd to 24th, with a morning-afternoon schedule on Thursday and condensing its activity until midday on Friday and Saturday, days of greatest musical activity. Although the start will take place on Wednesday, November 21 with a public interview with Phil Manzanera (Roxy Music) and a welcome cocktail that will call all the professionals and delegates invited this year.
