In the light of current challenges affecting the cultural sector sorely tested by the Covid-19 Crisis, the BABEL MUSIC XP International Forum will put Marseille firmly at the heart of the new world music scene.

With concerts for the public and professional meetings on innovation and economic issues, this event, brought to you by Latinissimo and the Zone Franche network, marks a triumphant return to the Dock des Suds which will host the musical part of the programme. By bringing together key actors in the music industry and the economy, BABEL MUSIC XP will provide a space for exchanging and sharing ideas and developing new forms of collaboration in a landscape undergoing huge changes.­­­
This event will take place at two points in the year : first on 26-27 November 2020 for the preliminary phase with a mixture of round tables, conferences and concerts, then on 25-27 March 2021, the main BABEL MUSIC XP Forum, an international trade fair with professional meetings and a programme of 30 groups selected by an independent jury.
In the evenings, the Dock des Suds will turn into a global festival for professionals and the public with a rich, innovative programme of concerts at the cutting edge of world music.

At the crossroads of finance, culture and innovation the International BABEL MUSIC XP Forum offers a new experience aimed at championing a cultural relaunch and promoting solidarity for everyone in the music industry in all its diverse forms.
