Music Industry State Of The Union
Today’s films, TV Shows, and digital content rely heavily on music as integral to creative storytelling and in many cases music becomes the story itself. And music now plays a huge part across all screens and in all genres – from scripted drama to artist discovery competitions to web-based comedic series. Last season yielded broadcast hits ranging from EMPIRE to THE VOICE to LIP SYNC BATTLE, each integrally centered on music and performance. The digital realm has fostered massively popular short-form content, such as CAR POOL KARAOKE. Stunning adaptions of Broadway musicals draw big numbers – and huge advertising dollars. Filmed musical entertainment is presenting an exploding opportunity for labels and artists looking for dynamic new ways to promote themselves and engage new fans. Traditional outlets and ways of distributing music have changed before our eyes. We are fortunate to have leaders who represent and are responsible for some of the most popular shows, films and talent in the business with us at NATPE to discuss the challenges and opportunities for artists, creators and audiences of today, and tomorrow.

The Nexus of Live Performance and Digital Broadcast
The thrill of a live performance on television reverberates all the way back to the first days of black and white screens, and the live concert and music festival business has never been more explosive in terms of growth and diversity. This panel explores the meeting place between these two cultural touchpoints, and how they are proving to be mutually beneficial despite the challenges inherent in navigating new territory. The fact that iconic consumer brands have jumped on board (along with major online platforms like HBO, You Tube, Yahoo!, Amazon Prime, Netflix, Hulu and multiple PPV outlets) to capitalize on the immediacy of the market is no surprise. Festival organizers and tour promoters are cutting more advance deals with global retailers to support live broadcast events and tours, which in turn creates new revenue streams populated with engaged audiences. Companies ranging from American Express, Samsung and Toyota to Spotify and Facebook Live – and some inventive VR content production houses – are pushing the envelope for immediate, enhanced delivery. The market for ancillary content and channels revolving around music, from Life Style to Fashion to Music Tourism gets hotter every day. Our expert panel will be your “behind the scenes” guides; no backstage pass required!

So Much Talent, So Many Platforms: Talent Discovery in a Multi-Platform World
Over the last decade, the process of finding the next big musical artist and the next “hit” has undergone a massive transformation. Television shows such as American Idol, X Factor and the Voice have catapulted artists from complete obscurity to worldwide fame. Super-crunchers wade through mounds of data to identify what human intuition often misses. Meanwhile, the traditional platforms for artist discover such as terrestrial radio and live performances continue to hold power in breaking new artists. How can music & TV executives, managers, brands and artists navigate this new eco-system to discover breakthrough talent? Our panel of experts will discuss the future of talent discovery in the age of social, data analytics, and the integration of traditional media. We explore the new intersection of man, machines and media in discovering the next generation of star talent.
