This MusicTank panel discussion will feature keynote speaker and noted academic, Peter Tschmuck, whose soon-to-be-published book - The Economics of Music - questions the profitability and sustainability of streaming and speculates on a near future of further market consolidation synonymous with mergers, acquisitions and probable bankruptcies.

What of the economic model underpinning subscription services, and what lies ahead in a market ripe for further consolidation, not least for Spotify, the current market leader, facing stiff and growing competition from huge corporates with more to sell than merely subscriptions to music?

Chaired by Keith Harris, confirmed speakers at the event include Mark Mulligan (MIDiA Research); Peter Jenner (Sincere Management); Peter Tschmuck (University of Music & the Performing Arts, Vienna); Sally Gross (University of Westminster) with others to be confirmed.
