Throughout Sweden Live's more than ten-year history, Sweden's leading tour companies, artist agencies, partners and music organizers have gathered annually to discuss industry trends and future prospects. Over the years, the conference has become a very popular event within the Swedish music industry, especially as artists' income has become increasingly dependent on playing live and touring.
