Describe the main features of the measure/initiative:
The Palestine Music Expo (PMX) brought Palestinian and international artists and professionals together, in an effort to build mutually beneficial relationships and develop valuable networking opportunities for the music industry in Palestine. The event was a huge success and will continue to be the major annual event on the Palestine music calendar for the coming years. The 2019 edition of PMX kicked off in Ramallah, included mini-tours to Hebron, Jerusalem, Bethlehem and a number of refugee camps for a more inclusive, well-rounded experience of the Palestinian music and the lives that inspire it.
What are the results achieved so far through the implementation of the measure/initiative?:
The festival showcases the Palestinian music, gives the attendees a sobering insight into what it’s like to live in the Palestinian territories and the hardships of living under occupation. The last three editions attracted large international crowds, with prominent producers such as the legendary Brian Eno and Lebanese indie royalty Yasmine Hamdan attending. In 2019, out of 100 acts from all over Palestine applied to play at PMX and these were narrowed down to just 20 performances.
