Next Stage: Social Music Marketing: Bands, Brands & Fans

The lines between the digital world and the music world have blurred.

It’s no secret that music is a great way to reach and connect with new consumers but today’s landscape offers more than just connections. Hear from Dan Vinh (Renaissance Hotels), Courtney Blacker (JanSport), Umut Ozaydinli (Deviant Ventures), Brad Josling (HIP Digital) and Panos Panay (Sonicbids) on how they’re using Social Music Marketing to tap into emerging bands and these bands’ marketing prowess to create new brand loyalists.
