FRIDAY 25TH SEPT 2020
11.00am: Keep Hush presents Bland Partnerships: Learn From the Worst
As the music industry’s profit margins collapse, brand partnerships have been a lifeline for promoters and musicians. But the cynical exploitation of ‘cool’ for profit reached a peak in the 2010s, with a plague of tasteless branding and thoughtless clout-grabs. The music industry needs the money, but it doesn’t have to be this way. By naming and shaming some of the worst partnerships of the decade, this panel will expose culture vultures, and establish a vision for successful partnerships in the 2020s.

12.40pm: rightsHUB presents Bang to rights: stop leaving money on the table!
“Hey Alexa, tell me how much money my catalogue is losing…”
How we consume music is constantly changing, and as the industry evolves you’re leaving money on the table. Just as everyone was getting comfortable with downloads, streaming came along. Now that streaming is here, a proliferation of platforms and services require assets and data in formats we could not have anticipate three years ago, let alone ten. New devices – and new ways to interact with content – mean that formats are shifting and adapting faster than ever – and catalogue owners and other rights holders who don’t hold all the relevant assets and data are left in the dust, managing assets and data is becoming more demanding each year.
