Lunch & Connect

The best official networking moment during New Music Conference? Let’s Meet & Connect over lunch – accessible for everyone attending the conference and curated with the utmost attention by the conference team.

Composers, musicians, managers, label owners, media professionals, journalists and festival organisers meet in a dedicated (lunch) setting.
You can only apply for the matchmaking sessions after registering for the conference (by purchasing a ticket).

It is no longer possible to apply for Lunch & Connect via the website. On the day itself you can check the desk at Lunch & Connect in the Tramkade room to see if there’s still a spot available.

Through Lunch & Connect, New Music Conference strives to build worthwhile and lasting connections between composers, performing musicians and other professionals in the music business. To do this, the Lunch & Connect team guides a series of one-on-one talks between selected professionals and applicants. Contacting and selecting is done with the utmost care and to the best of our team’s knowledge and belief. In the event of an excess of Lunch & Connect applications, we cannot guarantee that every desired professional will be available.
