The Dance Club: All sold out?
Friday 6 March 2015
14:00 – 15:00
Chair: Tom Schroeder, Coda Agency (UK)
EDM continued to become a consolidated sector run by multinationals in 2014, having moved firmly from the underground to become more overground than the Orient Express. From SFX to Live Nation and beyond, it was a year in which a lucky few collected sizeable cheques, while brands such as Tomorrowland and EDC continued their global expansion drive. But with SFX’s European head Duncan Stutterheim recently stating that unrealistic DJ fees are now killing the golden goose, is there a danger that the bubble might burst? How much beat is left in EDM’s drum and what can rock ‘n’ roll learn from it?
Guest speakers include:
Stefan Lehmkuhl, Melt! (DE)
Rich McGinnis, Warehouse Project (UK)
