The first of two Dragons’ Dens at ILMC 35 will see a couple of Latino dragons, industry pioneers, and long-time friends – Phil Rodriguez (Move Concerts) and Memo Parra (OCESA) – share stories from their careers, which have been instrumental in the growth of the live music industry in Latin America.

From taking A-list acts to the likes of Brazil, Argentina, Chile, and Mexico, to witnessing – and fuelling – the explosion of local talent now conquering the world from Latin America, Rodriguez and Parra look back over decades of tours and events and provide tips for others looking to make the most of the region’s impressive talent pool.

The session takes place at 14:00 on Wednesday, 1 March. Full details are here.
