Presented at ONA15

More from this event →

The internet and social media have profoundly changed the way we listen to music. Artists build sophisticated sites and social presences to connect directly with fans, and listeners discover new songs — and entire albums — through SM, videos and endless hours of playlists offered by music streaming services. Music journalists join us to discuss how they and the sites they write for keep audiences engaged in new, meaningful ways — hosting events and festivals, connecting artists and fans through mixes, interactive features and more.
