Avant-garde: support for exportation

With the creation of the AVANT-GARDE project, established in collaboration with Yourope (The European festival association), sponsored by Sacem with the support of Institut français, MaMA asserts its international identity and its support for exportation. For 2 days, Les Trois Baudets will welcome a selection of new French talents, also playing during MaMA Festival, who will perform small shows. These mini showcases are solely reserved for – and by registration only – international buyers. 70 internationals buyers (festivals & venue artistic programmers, labels, music supervisor…) will participate to Avant-Garde and will have the occasion to meet up with artists’ managements, agents…

By signing the Keychange agreement which tackles gender inequality, MaMA pledges to achieve 50:50 gender balance in its line-up and in its conference speakers by 2022.
