Staying relevant

Strategy, Innovation and Survival for record labels

This week is Distortion week. The best week in Copenhagen, where streets transform into block parties, carnevals and favella raves.

Before all the madness kicks off, there's a cool little panel discussion about the challenges of marketing music in 2011.


My mate Lewis Colston from Playground Music is on the panel. He knows a thing or two about a thing or two. Those two things being music and marketing music.

I don't know too much about the other guys, but I'm pretty sure this it will be an interesting and insightful talk. And a good excuse to have a beer with likeminded people.

See you there!
