The future of music needs a solid foundation

XP is built on four pillars that tackle everything to do with the music industry in the region. These are the cornerstones of who we are, what we believe in, and our roadmap for the future of music. In 2022, these pillars come to life in everything that you’ll experience at XP:

TALENT Supercharging Creativity

Talent is the core of what we do – focusing on the people that make our industry possible. We enable upcoming artists, producers, label owners, future venue owners and promoters, to turn their passion into self-sustaining businesses.

SCENE Making the Music Count

The scene pillar is focused on growing our audiences organically to create a robust music economy. We explore the importance of community-driven spaces – from underground parties to international concerts.

IMPACT Enable & Empower

Our Impact pillar focuses on empowering and enabling our scene through the application of knowledge creation. This helps us better understand the music ecosystem, highlighting sustainability, equality and social equity as fundamentals.

INNOVATION Disruptive Forward Thinking

The Innovation pillar taps into all the latest developments in the creative tech space, and showcases the transformation of the music industry. We're exploring NFTs, Web3 and the metaverse through the eyes of the pioneers in the field.


A global creative community of music industry professionals from varied backgrounds came together at XP Music Futures over three days to discuss and demonstrate how to stimulate a creative economy, map infrastructures from the underground, enhance local initiatives, and drive innovative opportunities. XP’s sessions were designed to inspire and guide artists, entrepreneurs, and policy-makers on how to shape their music futures in the MENA region.
