Moshito Music Conference and Exhibition

Date: 
31 Aug 2011 to 2 Sep 2011
Location: 
Johannesburg, South Africa

Since 2004 the Moshito Music Conference and Exhibition has established itself as Africa’s premiere music industry event.

Now entering its eighth year, Moshito – as it is known – is focused even more keenly on its objective of broadening the business intelligence of music industry professionals in South African and the continent, strengthening business networks for participants and informing delegates, traders and the public about the multifaceted and dynamic nature of the global music industry.

Historically, Moshito has its roots in the South African Music Industry Co-operation Initiative (SAMICI) which was formed 2003 as a part of a response to several pressing issues affecting the South Africa industry as a whole. For the first time, a broad base of industry stakeholders joined forces to focus on several key areas of the industry – in particular, music piracy, the need to develop music markets for South African music (especially beyond the country's borders) and the urgent need to create a social benefit and welfare programme for musicians.
