You Can Play This *Music Festival*… If You PAY $1,200

You really have to know your numbers and know that you can convert fans from the stage (and via some guerrilla stuff pre and post show) to figure out your return on investment here.

It would be an interesting case study to find out how many bands took them up on this. Then follow those bands to see if they thought it was worth it.

Spotify has become the Facebook of music streaming. I jumped back in with the 3 months for a penny promo. It's much improved over a couple of years ago. It won't be replacing Google Play All Access Music for me but I see the appeal for the regular Joe.

Roger Waters on Tech - Lefsetz

How does a guy who has created some of the most "open minded" music of its time end up so damn "close minded."

#musicindustry #musicbusiness #pinkfloyd
Just because you’re a rock star, that doesn’t make you right. In case you missed it, Roger Waters railed against techies in the London “Times” behind a paywall, but read a snippet here: Pink Floyd’s Roger Waters accuses music industry of ‘stealing every fucking cent anybody ever made’ and now we’ve got to see his …

It’s nice to see a social network like Instagram actually acknowledge the importance of music to their platform (they’re owned by Facebook, remember?).

Whether or not it will actually do anything meaningful for the music community at large remains to be seen, but overall I like what they’re trying to do.

http://dawcast.com/instagrams-new-music-channel-what-to-expect-and-how-to-get-featured/
If you aren’t using Instagram as a musician already, there’s a new reason to get started on the popular photo-sharing social networking app. Digital Music News announced yesterday – April 30, 2015 – that Instagram just launched its own @music channel. In Instagram’s own words, @music is: …a new account dedicated to exploring music around …
