Music Matters, 2010

Hong Kong based music industry conference Music Matters is hitting us left right and centre with press releases about their upcoming event (May 26/27).

You can check out everything that’s happening at their website, but in summary, here are a few of the best bits and pieces:

  • Daniel Ek from Spotify: Spotify has been the most talked about development in the music industry these last 12 months, but there has been plenty of controversy about whether or not the streaming music service will actually be good for artists or not. Despite big plans, Spotify still hasn’t laid out clear timelines for both the US and more intriguingly, China.
  • Bill Silva, the legendary promoter and manager will be coming with his charge Jason Mraz, who will be engaging in a performance/ interview at the end of the last day of the conference
  • A new multi venue music festival, in conjunction with the Lan Kwai Fong bar strip of Hong Kong.
