In the last two decades the study of popular music has become increasingly diverse. More questions are asked about the different meanings of music in people's everyday lives and researchers give considerable attention to various factors that influence the formation of local, translocal and virtual music scenes. Furthermore, the global music industry and its influence on local music production, new technology and the development of cultural industry clusters are considered as important research areas. The conference will address various topics on today's research agenda.
Conference will be held in English.
