VIENNA MUSIC BUSINESS RESEARCH DAYS 2018

Die neunten VIENNA MUSIC BUSINESS RESEARCH DAYS finden in diesem Jahr vom 12. bis zum 14. September an der Universität für Musik und darstellende Kunst Wien statt. Behandelt und diskutiert wird heuer das Thema „Music Life is Live”. Die Wiener Tage der Musikwirtschaftsforschung setzen sich zum Ziel, WissenschafterInnen aus allen Disziplinen und PraktikerInnen aus dem Musikbusiness einmal im Jahr in Wien zu versammeln, um sich über aktuelle Fragen und neueste Ergebnisse der Musikwirtschaftsforschung auszutauschen.

Während die phonografische Industrie in den letzten beiden Jahrzehnten mit starken Umsatzrückgängen zu kämpfen hatte, erfreute sich das Live-Musikbusiness zur gleichen Zeit eines Booms, der sich in steigenden BesucherInnen-Zahlen und immer mehr Veranstaltungen auch messen lässt. Konzerte wurden zur wichtigsten Einnahmequelle für die KünstlerInnen, wodurch das Musikbusiness heutzutage in erster Linie live ist. Unter diesem Titel widmen sich die 9. Vienna Music Business Research Days an der Universität für Musik und darstellende Kunst Wien dem Live-Musiksektor.
