Indie Empires Panel
In the few last years we’ve seen a rise of fast growing independent music players creating their own micro-empires with Youtube / Spotify / Soundcloud channels with millions of followers and often a built-in record label. Many have successfully built state-of-art music funnels, hacking their own growths and becoming forces to reckon with. Recently the grammy nominated producer Morgan Page signed his new hit single Candles straight to the indie youtube channel Proximity (5,5M followers) figuring that it would provide a wider reach and more streams than the traditional labels. In this panel we meet some of the people behind these indie clusters and look into their motives, trade secrets and A&R philosophies. We will also get their tips for artists who want to get featured on high-volume channels as well as best practices for building a significant amount of followers of your own.
