Rafe Offer, Co-Founder & CEO Sofar Sounds will kick off the event, sharing lessons from his experience building Sofar from a living room show to a global brand.
Nicole Wyskoarko, Executive Vice President of Urban Operations Interscope, Geffen A&M is flying in from LA for a keynote interview.
Ben Mackriell, EVP of leading sports data analytics company OptaPro will share his perspective on the power of data to transform the culture of an industry.
International songwriters Mac and Phil, who have written with Emeli Sande, Chainsmokers and Naughty Boy, share their experiences and process with UK artist Jake Isaac.
In addition to the keynotes, there are 6 panels across the two days, covering topics including the boom in vinyl sales; lessons from the ‘rental economy’, what can music learn from companies with no assets; staying healthy on the road; are niches the future of music festivals; after Despacito, what next for Latin music; and a no-holds-barred conversation about the rights and wrongs of playlist culture; does it actually develop artist careers, or does it rather teach consumers to engage less with artist names, song names and self led discovery?
