The Future Music Forum (FMF) is one of the European music industry events that you must go to. Now in its 8th edition, it incorporates the 3rd edition of London Sync Session (LSS).
Since 2015 LSS has helped establish business relationships in the music industry, while giving an in-depth understanding of the state of this part of the industry that keeps evolving and moving forward. A must attend event for everyone involved in the sync field, the event will be attended by over 300 industry professionals.
“In-depth debate, constructive arguments and professional conflict is at the heart of what London Syns Session is” (LSS 2017)
Barcelona here we come
The 2017 edition will take place on 14th and 15th September at The Old Estrella Damm Brewery in Barcelona, offering a vast array of comprehensive discussions about the role of synchronisation and publishing in the creative industries, from CEOs, publishers, film and TV producers, supervisors and composers as well as workshops and live showcases from Europe's freshest up and coming bands.
Niall Doorley, Future Music Forum founder, recently spoke about the decision to host the Sync Sessions at this year’s event: “LSS has quickly become the definitive and must-attend event for all in the world of sync and perfectly complements our offering at FMF. They bring a focused cohort of the best of the sync and publishing world to our global cross-sector of industry attendees. What delegates experience when they attend the conference is an intimate gathering of like-minded industry professionals, frank discussions about the business’ landscape and the opportunity to network with an international community of forward-thinkers and decision-makers”.
London Sync Session co-founder and Head of Metropolis Creative, Rupert Hollier, also added: “FMF has established itself as one of the most authentic and highest quality industry conferences on the European agenda, so it seemed a natural event partner for us. LSS provides attendees with an opportunity to engage with in-depth discussions about the role of synchronisation in the music industry, with contributions from CEOs, publishers, record labels, film and TV producers, supervisors and composers, and has fast become something of a Mecca for those in our sector of the industry, so brings a new element of detailed focus to the overall FMF content”.
To meet the expected high quality standard set by the huge success of the 2015 and 2016 editions, whilst also making sure to deliver the best content, LSS has teamed up with AIM (Association Of Independent Music), BASCA, Music Publisher Association, Metropolis Studios, GMS, PlayStation and many others companies that are currently leading the way in the syncing and publishing field.
This year will see some music industry heavyweights taking the stage to talk and discuss the business of syncing. Amongst other confirmed so far you will find Sarah Bridge (Music Supervisor for The Theory Of Everything, Absolutely Fabulous), Rupert Hollier (Creative Director of Music Supervision at Metropolis Creative), Peter Bradbury (Head of Music at British SKY Broadcasting), Duncan Smith (Senior Music Supervisor SONY Interactive Entertainment Europe) and Ian Neil (Director Music for Film, TV, Advertising and Computer Games at SONY Music Entertainment).
The city centre of Barcelona is relatively small so hotels across the city are all suitable options via the Metro connections. Being just a short walk from the Sagrada Familia, there is a selection of hotels close to the conference venue. The LSS website also recommends using Airbnb.
