Mingle with music visionaries at Relix Magazine’s first ever conference

After more than 40 years of producing one of the country’s leading music publications, Relix Magazine is now gearing up for its first live music conference, May 10 at Brooklyn Bowl in New York.

“It’s an extension of the magazine,” says Relix’s Bradley Tucker. “In the print magazine and online, we started covering industry people one by one. The idea was to profile everyone else in the music industry who contributed to the live show, since Relix for so long was covering just the music.” Continue reading

In 1998, the founders of Edison Research picked up signals that online media–including music and other formats–were becoming a “thing,” so it embarked on a study to measure consumer usage of “new” media. While that first report concluded that only a small portion of the population used online media, they detected plenty of listener enthusiasm for what the future held.

Obviously, much in the media world has changed since the late 90s, except the fact that Edison Research still measures online consumer behavior every year. Their annual Infinite Dial report has become a much-anticipated annual event among media providers and advertising professionals.

Experiences are everything: your events matter to marketers

Live events provide a unique opportunity for artists and fans to forge meaningful personal connections. This post, originally published on Pandora for Brands’ Insights blog, explains why brands are increasingly looking at event sponsorship as one of the best ways to build awareness and reach new customers. 

 

You don’t need us to tell you that music has the power to create incredible experiences. It can cure a breakup, take you back in time and totally make or break a party. But some music experiences are just more memorable than others.

Nothing comes quite as close to the exhilaration of seeing your favorite band live. The act of sharing the moment with a community of fellow fans, sweating it out together as you scream lyrics from the top of your lungs—that’s when real memories are formed.
