The 13th Annual Moshito Music Conference and Exhibition takes place from 7 to 10 September 2016 at SABC Auckland Park, Johannesburg. This year’s theme ‘Censored: When the Revolution Could Not be Televised’ recognises the artistic voices who appropriate their message through songs and bring the plight of the marginalised people to the attention of the State, for the world to know. The theme speaks to the fact that music can act as an unsolicited yet resourceful civic perception survey that highlights the prevailing socio-economic and political realities of the day from which public authorities must heed unless they decide to censor it.
Moshito 2016 has lined-up a series of interesting topics, showcases and concerts where the music industry practitioners, musicians, festival promoters, booking agents, music managers, and exhibitors from, over 7 international music markets, will come together to interact, discover talent and strike music business deals necessary for the growth of the creative industries. With over 100 panelists, participating in over 12 topics – 5 breakaways, 5 plenaries, 2 workshops, 1 music managers meeting, as well as demo and music showcases, Moshito 2016 is poised to be a place where music meets business and business meets music.
The conference will take place from 7-10 September 2016 at SABC Radio Park located on the corner of Artillery and Henley Roads in Auckland Park, Johannesburg.
