SONIC VISIONS is Luxembourg’s main music industry event that connects artists and professionals from the music, IT and creative industries from all over Europe. Directly neighbouring the key markets of Belgium, France and Germany, SONIC VISIONS is an initiative of Rockhal and Rocklab.
By combining the two main activities of Rockhal as a concert promoter and its Rocklab as a music & creative industries incubator, SONIC VISIONS Music Lab is the platform where music professionals, artists and musicians meet with first-class industry experts to exchange, discuss, network and get inspired.
In collaboration with its long-time partner, Film Fund Luxembourg, SONIC VISIONS will kick-off this year already on Thursday 14 November by dedicating an additional day of the SONIC VISIONS Music Lab to explore the fascinating relationship between music and cinema.
