DRESS CODE: Informal. No vested interests, no politics and no agendas.
ADMISSION: An open mind, open ears and a passion for the topics discussed. There is no charge, though the more booze you buy the nicer our hosts will be.
LINEUP: this session we will have Anthony Volodkin from Hype Machine dropping in all the way from the US for a roundtable discussion on music blogs and their role in today’s digital music ecosystem. We hope to cover all angles, here are some primers…
– are music blogs the future labels?
– how can music blogs get licensed?
– how can music bloggers monetize?
– can chatter in the blogosphre predict future hits?
– are music blog aggregators the new radio?
– how does major label investment in blogs like Idolator and Stereogum change the landscape?
After our discussion we encourage everyone to stay and enjoy the great food at the William IV. Looking forward to see you all there!
