What is the future of music?

Our first ever virtual Future of Music Summit will bring together artists, management, brand execs, entrepreneurs and investors globally to radically rethink about the music industry in a post Covid-19 world.

Addressing the ‘elephant in the room’ we will explore what’s next for live music landscape and independent artists – looking at the role of technology in delivering live music events virtually – from monetisation through to choosing the right technology platform.

We will also look at the importance of a healthy mindset, how artist release strategies have developed in 2021 and how global brands are seeking to connect with independent artists over major ones and why.
