We introduced the idea some business professionels here in Berlin had, of doing an event called all2gethernow during the days postoned Popkomm was meant to happen. Not only making it a substitute, but question how to run a pro music event in general. They plan to start in good old 2.0 fashion waiting for user input.
Yesterday the first conspirative meeting of supporters happened:
Outcome is rather slim, a club/ association was founded acting as the organisational body of the event, it was proclaimed to be ‘open’ and runs for both, grassroots and established business.
Sept. 16.-17. a barcamp is scheduled, place is tbc (a barcamp is kind of an slam-poetry version of a conference, everybody is meant to say something, eventually some sense might occur….)
Sept. 18. a conference at the Radialsystem/ Berlin
Concerts, maybe even showcases are planned during the period, an official network of Berlin based Clubs & Venues is on board and willing to support.
If there is going to be a professional infrastructure wasn’t clarified till now (contact database to preschedule meetings, a clear and fix timetable for showcases, guaranteed access for pros to events/concerts, ect..
The guys in charge – well call it steering committee – is ready for your ideas and input (they say). If you got a brilliant idea, maybe this will be the future event to make it happen?
