SXSW Here We Come!

We are thrilled to announce that SXSW has chosen our panel on piracy to be part of the music portion of their 2016 festival. This has been a dream of our team since we first made landfall in Austin earlier this year, and to see how much support we received from those of you in our extended community was nothing short of a humbling experience.

Our panel, ‘Digital Distribution & Security: The End Of Piracy’ will tackle the tough topic of piracy in the modern music industry. We will discuss the ongoing impact of piracy on the livelihood of musicians, the efforts being made to eradicate music leaks, and what hope lies on the horizon. 

Joining us for this event will be panelists Jacob Tender (freelance PR, music writer), Rey Roldan (founder of Another Reybee Productions), and Jen Appel (founder of The Catalyst Publicity Group). We hope you will join us as well, and we will do our best to provide ample information regarding event specifics as the launch of the festival grows closer.

If you would like to learn more about SXSW 2016 and how you can attend, please head over to the festival’s official website. We hope to see you there!
