According to a report by Midem, a music industry conference, electronic music is the fastest-growing genre in Africa, with a growth rate of 18% or more each year since 2018. This growth is largely driven by the younger generation, who are increasingly embracing electronic music and incorporating it into their cultural identity.
Africa’s electronic music industry is set for a promising future, thanks to its young and expanding audience, a rising number of music festivals, and access to cutting-edge technologies. The continent is on the brink of establishing itself as a key player in the worldwide electronic music scene, and the Africa Rising Music Conference is leading the way in this exciting development.
After last year’s success and support from the likes of Mixmag and Trace TV Southern Africa, the conference will once again feature key players in the electronic music space including one of Germany’s longest-running electronic music publications, Groove Mag and Association for Electronic Music.
