Sandbox Summit 2018 | NYC #MarketMusicBetter

With Early Bird tickets having already sold out, Music Ally is pleased to announce some of the key speakers for Sandbox Summit NYC – the one-day music marketing conference sponsored by Linkfire and Push Entertainment which takes place at Opry City Stage, Times Square, New York onWednesday 25th April.

After the hugely successful inaugural Sandbox Summit in London, we have responded to demand in the US for an educational, future-thinking event focused on music marketing where marketers can learn, network and share ideas within the context of our carefully curated and future-thinking programme.

At Sandbox Summit we like to shine a spotlight on some of the younger talent that is helping to shape the industry of the future. And this is reflected by our keynote interviewee: Andre Benz

Andre is the 21 year old founder & curator of Trap Nation / The Nations. Andre founded the trap/electronic dance YouTube channel Trap Nation which now boasts over 18 million subscribers at the tender age of 15. Now running the Nations network of channels which includes Chill Nation, Bass Nation, Rap Nation, Indie Nation, R&B Nation, and House Nation, we’ll be asking Andre what lessons the modern day music business can learn from this successful YouTube MCN entrepreneur.
