Thursday – Friday Feb 11-12 – Pollstar Live!

I'll be spending Thursday and Froday at San Francisco's Marriott Marquis hanging with the touring business tribe at Pollstar Live! While many of these great folks are Hypebot readers, I know most of them from my work as President of boutique live music booking agency Skyline Music

On Friday morning at 11 AM, I'm hosting a panel along with some very special guests.

Spotify, YouTube & Ticketmaster Know Your Audience Better Than You

Digital services collect mountains of data and are increasingly willing to share it with musicians and their teams. For those who know where to look, it's the touring industry's Holy Grail. Using real-world examples, representatives from Spotify, Pandora, YouTube and Ticketmaster will help explore how artists, agents, promoters and other stakeholders can use data to book shows and market events more successfully.

Will I see you while I'm in San Francisco?
