Title: The Music Games: A New Chapter for Artists & Fans
Description: Fantasy sports engage 50 million global players 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. These players don’t merely watch sports; they examine stats, track new talent, follow multiple games and thus relate to their favorite sport in a more meaningful way. Fantasy sports brought about a massive shift in the fan experience by creating an active, rather than passive, form of participation. In this panel, five industry experts will discuss how and why music makes traditional game play more fun, and how and why games make the discovery and sharing of music more fun.

Title: Enhancing the Mobile Music Experience
Description: Two of the great side-effects of the current smartphone boom are the big gains in the number of mobile music consumers as well the increased appetite for music related apps. However, with more and more music fans turning to their mobile devices to listen to, learn about their favorite artists and share their experiences, it becomes increasingly important for app builders and developers to not only drive fan engagement but also to help fans find the information they are looking for via an elegant and simple user interface. It also means “mobile” as a distinct entity will become even more important for artists and their teams and will start to demand more expertise and partnerships.
