Vinyl Present, Vinyl Future

Mar 17, 2022

10:00am – 11:00am CT

The 15 year boom in vinyl record sales has collided with a two year old pandemic to change an industry and raise tough questions for artists and labels: How do you manufacture records in reasonable time and cost given the current supply chain mess? How do record stores keep the shelves stocked for fans? And how does the new country of NFTs change what "a record" means and what new kinds of creativity it could hold? This session gathers us around the turntable of the present to see where the vinyl record may be rolling onto next.
