The purpose of the Denniz Pop Awards is to allow opportunities, help and strengthen as many new music talents as possible in order for Sweden’s international pop music heritage to go on – the legacy Denniz Pop once started. One way we do this is by arranging speed dating sessions between new promising talent and the music industry’s most influential people. In June 2017 we held our second ‘Denniz Pop Awards Backstage Speeddate’ at Spotify HQ in Stockholm.
Some 60 selected young talented songwriters, producers and artists got to meet with 20 music executives during this 4hour daytime session. The speed dates were conducted with the help of two sets of Urbanears headphones connected to one device on which the music was played.
During the short sessions representatives from Sony Music Sweden, Refune Music Group, Universal Music, TEN Music Group, Kobalt Music Recordings/AWAL, Warner Music Sweden, Sony/ATV Music Publishing Scandinavia, Cow Pow, Warner Chappell, Spinnup, RMV Publishing, Northbound music Group, 300 Entertainment, THE KENNEL and BMGlistened and offered their expertise feedback.
After the sessions the participants were invited to listen to Jules Parker, Director of Publisher & Songwriter Relations at Spotify, giving some valuable keys to making it in music online.
We’re looking forward to many more of these rewarding events!
