Once heralded as an industry saviour, a stigma is beginning to form around streaming services, spurred on by the abstention of high profile acts like Coldplay and Bob Dylan as well as the radio silence from labels on the detail of licensing deals.

Panel of speakers  

MusicTank will place this misunderstood issue under the spotlight, with a panel made up of industry luminaries including Steve Savoca (Head of Content, Spotify); Paul Loasby, (Owner, One Fifteen Management); Mark Mulligan (Digital Media Strategist); Mark Kelly (CEO FAC); Simon Wheeler (Director of Strategy, Beggars Grp), Danny Ryan (MD, Kudos Records)  and Cosmo Lush (Senior VP Digital Business Development, EMI Music). Chairman: Keith Harris (MusicTank/PPL/Keith Harris Music).
 
The issue could not be more important – some argue that unless streaming is both understood and embraced, the recordings business will be thrashing around a fifth percentile of licensed consumption for many years to come.   This think tank will drill to the heart of the issue, answering the two central questions – ‘how does the model work?’ And ‘how do the artists get paid?’
