The 7th edition of Visa For Music, the first professional market and music festival in Africa and the Middle East, will take place from 18 to 21 November 2020, as every year during the event, in Rabat. The capital is thus transformed into a melting pot of music.
The event was established after the observation that there is a real dynamism in artistic creation in Africa and the Middle East on the one hand, but above all the lack of visibility of its artists on the other, this meeting between artists offers these professionals a forum for expression. Allowing to bring together around the same theme, music, this event has today become a special platform.
Indeed, it promotes opportunities for encounters and helps to give the visibility and the place they deserve to the artists of the continent. Whether on a national or global level, Visa For Music wishes to confirm its role as a key event for artists and professionals in the sector. And for good reason: every year, this meeting invites agents, record companies, programmers, cultural institutions and foundations, media and trainers, etc. to attend.
Through 40-minute special showcases aimed at professionals in the sector, the artists who perform offer the fruit of their work and their creation in live public conditions. For this 7th edition, 30 artists will be selected by the jury, whose names have not yet been announced. Electro artists (DJs/VJs) will also be selected to perform during the after-midnight showcases.
The call for entries for the official selection is open. The deadline for applications is March 31, 2020!
As a reminder, each year Visa For Music brings together more than 2,000 artists, professionals and journalists from all over the world.
