A miniature festival for metal heads adds more variety to Lost In Music line-up

Lost In Music, a festival dedicated to showcasing new Finnish music, expands into the metal territory in October. Metal Export Finland, a mini-festival organized as a part of Lost In Music, consists of eight topical heavy metal acts, seven of which are from Finland and one all the way from Canada.

Promoter Rowan Rafferty of Nem Agency sums up the new event:
- Finland is the promised land of metal music, and for the longest time the genre has been one of our best-known exports abroad. In Metal Export Finland, we are showcasing what we think are the best and most promising current bands while waving the local Tampere flag. I personally believe the program will stir interest for Music & Media Finland and Lost In Music Festival have always been important attractions for foreign metal music experts.

Bands selected for Metal Export Finland are, among others, Tampere-based Ember Falls and Whispered. Both have shown great promise and created waves both in Finland and abroad. Ember Falls has made a global recording contract with Universal Music and Spinefarm earlier this year, and Whispered will make an UK tour before their Lost In Music performance.

Nordic Business Forum Live Stream and Music & Media Finland under the same roof

The Nordic Business Forum Live Stream event arranged in Tampere 6-7 October 2016 is relocating from the Tampere Exhibition and Sports Centre to the Solo Sokos Hotel Torni, the homebase of Music & Media Finland.

The event organisers want to make the contents of Scandinavia's biggest business seminar available for the music-industry professionals participating in Finland's leading event in their field, as well. Nordic Business Forum's main topics of this year - digitalisation, company culture and marketing - are an excellent addition to the extensive programme of Music & Media Finland.

The Nordic Business Forum Live Stream will follow the same concept as the sold-out main event in Helsinki. The business decision-makers participating in the Tampere Live Stream event get to enjoy the main event's speeches and expand their networks. Networking may be assisted with the Brella tool, and Finnish and Russian translations of the contents provided in English are available free of charge via a mobile application. Questions can also be submitted from Tampere to the main stage in Helsinki. The commentator of the Tampere event is Kari Korkiakoski, CEO of Futurelab Finland.

The Tampere event is organised by Tampere Trade Fairs Ltd's event unit Finland Events under NBForum Oy's licence.

Music & Media would like to thank you!

Music & Media 2015 has successfully come to an end. Thanks again to all our delegates, panelists and moderators!

Our program was bigger and better than ever before. Fascinating seminars attracted approximately 800 participants to Tampere. The Lost In Music showcase festival kept the audiences entertained with more than 100 artists throughout the course of four evenings.

Music & Media International Summit offered two days of popular content. On Thursday sync cases such as Avicii & Volvo as well as Eminem & Call of Duty were presented in "Power Placements". Get Synced! Workshops offered a possibility for participants to meet 12 music supervisors and present their music for the supervisors' projects. Festivals 2030 and Songwriters' Talk were crowd-pleasers. In Festival 2030, festival heads such as Suvi Kallio (Flow Festival) and Tamás Kádár (Sziget) were met by the executive producer of Slush challenging them to think the possibilities technology creates for festival venues. In Songwriters' Talk Sean Douglas told the story of how Talk Dirty became a worldwide smash hit for Jason Derulo and chatted with his Nordic colleagues about the process of songwriting.
