Keynotes confirmed for International Festival Forum

German impresarios Marek and Andre Lieberberg have been announced as the joint keynotes for the second International Festival Forum (IFF), taking place at Proud Camden on 28-29 September.

Marek Lieberberg and his son Andre are part of a dynasty that has been heavily involved in the German music industry since the 1960s, and will share lessons from their six decades working in concert promotion.

The Forum will welcome around 500 festival bookers and agents and cover topics including contracts & licensing, the artists’ perspective and the latest tech innovations set to change the industry.

It will also see the return of The Therapy Session, a lively annual discussion between bookers and agents.

IFF co-founder Ruud Berends of Networking Music commented: “After last year’s sell-out launch event, we’re broadening the IFF agenda to include more of the key topics in the international festival business. With more showcases than ever, more agency partners, and even a few more invited delegates, it’s looking like a great second edition.”

The full event schedule is available on the IFF website.
