#MIDEM/The Guide

For those of you jetting/not jetting off to Cannes for Midem, here’s a guide to follow #MIDEM. Top tweeps among the mix are @iancr, @spinaltap, @msutherlanduk, @amandapalmer, @hypebot, @petewentz, @ginab,@gleonhard, @lyricfind, @JeffreyHayzlett. Watch for brands (Converse, Kodak, Pepsi, Coke…), artists (Pete Wentz, Pharrell Williams, Adam Payne..) and unique opportunities like the Matching Room where bands are matched with brands and the Listening Sessions where music is placed into cable shows like The Hills, Dexter and House, into music trailers, into TV commercials (Pantene), and into video games (DJ Hero).
