How Visuals & Tech are Changing the Live Electronic Music Experience
"Visuals dictate the music I play“ - Anonymously stated by one of the biggest stars in EDM, this statement encapsulates the current state of electronic live performance. In the US, electronic music festivals are at an all-time high with just shy of 1m tickets sold to EDM-only festivals in 2014. The performance of electronic music is no longer just about a DJ mixing two tracks. It’s about a shared experience, the combined consumption of realtime audio and video - giant screens, giant drops, a giant miracle touching all senses. Music tech companies, festival organizers and artists discuss what comes first in the conception of live shows, music or visuals, and in which direction things are heading in the future.

Exposure vs. Revenue on YouTube: Must We Choose?
YouTube is the largest streaming platform in the world with a massive breadth of content, a large portion of which is devoted to music. It also boasts the second most powerful search engine after Google, making it ideal for music discovery. While publishers, artists and labels make money on YouTube, and while YouTube continues to focus on increasing revenue for content creators, the age old question exists: if we have to make a choice, what’s more important: audience exposure or revenue? We will attempt to answer that question, taking into account who is asking, what the ultimate goal is, and what the best corresponding strategies are.
