SIM São Paulo adds more than 130 events to the city’s nightlife
With every year that passes, the nightly programming during the International Music Week in São Paulo gets more hotly contested. While conference activities and business talks are concentrated at the Centro Cultural São Paulo, the night’s presentations, parties, and cocktails are spread out across the city’s venues between December 6 and 10. During this year’s edition, SIM São Paulo will include more than 130 shows at more than 20 venues throughout the city.
Among the attractions that audiences can expect this year are bands and artists from various Brazilian states, as well as from countries such as Canada, France, Australia, Portugal, Chile, and England. The events are put together by producers, agents, brands, festivals, musicians, and committees coming from across all of Brazil and from three different continents, and are organized by the music industry itself.
Brasil Music Exchange (BME), a project organized by Brazil Music & Arts (BM&A) in partnership with the Brazilian Trade and Investment Promotion Agency (Apex-Brasil) to promote exports by the music industry, is bringing international guests to the event. A number of workshops are planned to strengthen the connections between members and these professionals, as well as numerous showcases so that everyone can get more exposure to the Brazilian music scene. There will also be business rounds.
The SIM credential (pro-badge) ensures access to the complete agenda of nightly programming, but tickets will also be sold for individual shows.
