The music industry has changed a lot over the last 20 years. It is harder for musicians to make money selling music, but it’s easier than before to reach a global audience. Musicians, producers, managers and other players in the music industry must learn to work in new ways to generate revenue and growth. There is a great potential in the music industry learning to think market-oriented and gaining a deep understanding of the music industry’s terms. These challenges call for the Municipality of Aalborg and the local music industry to join forces in this project.
