The live shows that saw Echo & the Bunny­men, Diod­ato, The Murder Cap­it­al, Skunk Anan­sie, Tom Morello and The Cult altern­ate on the stage of the seafront rotunda were unfor­get­table and excit­ing.

The spaces of the Uni­ver­sity pulsate with life for pro­fes­sion­al and net­work­ing activ­it­ies which brought a pres­ti­gi­ous rep­res­ent­a­tion of the Itali­an music mar­ket to Taranto to dis­cuss the Music Com­mis­sion, sup­port for the new gen­er­a­tions, the live mar­ket, the record­ing industry, song­writ­ing, pro­tec­tions and rights, fund­ing for the record­ing industry and music in the time of Tik­Tok.
