If you’ve been living under a music news rock, here’s some quick catch-up. A couple weeks ago, Forbes reported that the International Music Summit valued The Electronic Music Industry at $4.5 billion dollars. Robert Sillerman acquired the nation’s most influential rock concert promoters and sold them to Clear Channel for $4.4 billion in the ’90s. Clear Channel then spawned Live Nation, the world’s largest music promotion company.
Sillerman has been competing with the monster music promoter he created, Live Nation, by spending $1 billion acquiring the most influential electronic music promoters (TomorrowLand, ElectricZooNY, Disco Donnie Presents, Stereo Sonic, to name a few) under his company, SFX.
Five of the top female electronic DJs and artists speak out on how these new acquisitions will not only affect EDM music promoters and festival production, but their careers as well. ->
