Featured Session: Creating an Equitable Future for Artists in Streaming

Mar 14, 2024

11:30am – 12:30pm CT

While streaming has certainly helped democratize access to music, it hasn’t evenly shared the profits with the artists. When the largest streaming platform only returns 70% of the money it generates from music back to the industry, we know that there’s a problem. Per the RIAA, 1,500 streams are the equivalent of one album. And that's just for tracking purposes; with the average stream netting just a fraction of a penny, most artists need even more streams than that to make up the revenue from a single album sale.
There has to be a better way. Join producer TOKiMONSTA for a candid conversation about the future of streaming -- on where artists capture more of the value that they generate with their work
