The event focused on the themes of peace, diversity, and inclusion, offering a unique perspective on advocating for peace. Throughout the conference, there was a pervasive message promoting the significance of diversity and its inherent strength. Linecheck 2023 notably emphasized the importance of inclusion, particularly advocating for unfairly marginalized groups, which was a recurring theme highlighted during the event’s opening session (Many Kisses – Opening Session).

Linecheck 2023: Logical Organization

In its early stages, Linecheck was conceived with two fundamental components. Over the years, Linecheck evolved, and the 2023 edition is organized into four primary program components.

? Meeting
? Showcase
? Festival
? Networking

The meeting concentrates on exploring the evolving professions and dynamics within the music industry, fostering innovative ideas through constructive dialogues. It spans the entire day, commencing from morning coffee until the evening. This logical segment (Meeting) is structured around panel discussions, presentations, and interviews involving industry professionals.


La Capsula at Linecheck 2023 hosts live performances by selected artists, offering a 360° auditory experience in MusicRooms, a part of Base Milano. This space functions as a recording studio and a cozy performance area with soundproof walls, a control room, a 60-seat auditorium, and an innovative 3D sound system, giving emerging talents exposure to music professionals and enthusiasts.


This logical segment is shaped by the line-up of established performers who showcased their live performances in front of the event’s auditorium.


An aspect of the event that encourages networking and fostering connections among individuals is a designated networking segment. This component is structured to facilitate meetings between peers in the music and creative industries during specific time slots. It aims to arrange one-on-one meetings with professionals including record companies, booking agents, promoters, and publishers.
