Launchpad: How Streaming Curators Help Artists

Mar 15, 2017

2:00pm – 3:00pm CT

Streaming music curators and playlisters have become instrumental in launching the careers of artists and musicians. Some of these success stories have occurred without or in spite of the lack of support at terrestrial radio, a traditional gatekeeper. Some notable examples include Hozier, Major Lazer, Sam Hunt, Maren Morris and the list goes on.

This panel introduces some of the best music curators in the business. Come find out why they do what they do. This is an opportunity to gather insight into what catches their eyes (and ears) and how to stay on their radar. We will also discuss new ways to be heard on various platforms.
