Midem announces new dates (again)

Welcome to Midem, CannesMusic trade fair Midem has announced new dates for 2016. After years of being held in the cold month of January, it switched to early June in 2015 and announced dates in late June in 2016.

The organisers have been able to bring Midem forward and have announced the dates of June 7-10, 2016. This will be the 50th anniversary of Midem, with suitable celebrations being planned. It will also mean that participants can enjoy that famous Cannes sunshine rather than the colder and wetter January weather in January.
