Music Tectonics conference goes virtual in October

Last year’s Music Tectonics conference in Los Angeles was a welcome addition to the industry calendar, and it’s returning for its second year on 28-28 October.

As with other conferences, the event will be online, with the promise of “highly interactive small-group and one-on-one networking” and exhibitor/demo rooms, along with panels and keynotes.

Among the confirmed speakers so far: WMG’s Scott Cohen, Water & Music’s Cherie Hu, Roblox’s Jon Vlassopulos, Panache Ventures’ David Dufresne, and Feed·fm’s Lauren Pufpaf.

Tickets will cost $59, with a ‘VIP’ option for $300, and AdRev, Linkfire and Super Hi-Fi are signed up as sponsors. Find out more at the Music Tectonics website.
