Future Sound System: How Tech is Disrupting the Music Industry

May 22, 2018 · 's-Hertogenbosch, Netherlands

What will the Future Sound System Look like? Are services like Spotify transforming the music industry for better, or for worse? What effect will data and AI have on the industry? Join us for an in depth discussion on Data, Dope Beats and a dream of a better music industry.

NOTE! We have limited seats and only want deeply engaged people in this session. You can't NOT participate.

That's why you can only attend by answering the question (showed when you sign up) on what you would change to make the music industry better.
