07 Jul: Millennials & The Social Media Explosion

This MusicTank seminar will lift the lid on the social media phenomenon and reveal how rights holders can better engage with this social space and make sense of its increasingly complex future.

Beginning with a presentation from artist, composer and serial social media experimenter Steve Lawson, this event will also update on progress of our chosen Millennials artist James Yuill, twelve-months on from MusicTank’s Millennials conference at which Terry McBride spearheaded a unique 360-degree artist road-map assisted by the amassed 180-strong conference audience.

Closing this event will be a 90-minute debate looking at the future of social media in an attempt to gauge where it’s heading and its impact on rights holders, with a panel comprising far-sighted entrepreneurs, commentators and digital culture experts.
