Set up in 2018, the “Smart Music Cities and Regions” working group has set itself the task of promoting cooperation and exchange in the German music industry and strengthening the visibility of pop culture locally, and at the national level. This includes the exchange of best practice models, for example in relation to cooperation with administration and politics. The focus is as much on the exchange between urban and rural areas as it is on music cities.

The fall of the Berlin Wall, free spaces and low cost of living shaped Berlin in the 1990s and promoted the creative industry. In order to maintain these framework conditions, which are favorable for the creative industry, and to counter current developments, a working group was founded in 2019 that is dedicated to the continuation of the idea of the Music 2020 campaign.

The corona-related lockdown has affected the culture, sports and leisure events industries particularly hard.
