Despite only being in its second year, Filter’s upcoming Culture Collide is already looking like a who’s-who in creativity and music industry heavyweights. As we often say at Label Networks, knowing what’s happening with the music industry changes, in particular, the business of music, leads to where trends are headed in many other industries. From downloading and spending patterns, to new technology, subcultures and genres, and entertainment, what re-shapes the latest in music has a ripple effect across the board. This is also one reason why our latest Fall Youth Culture Study 2013 also includes an entire section devoted to music and youth culture markets.
From October 10-11, 2013 in the heart of Los Angeles in Echo Park, key industry leaders from major labels, brands, bands, international communities and outlets will be among the various panels discussing where things are headed next.
To start however, is a new program called the Creative Summit featuring a round-table discussion with music legend Moby, street artist and activist Shepard Fairey, and thenewno2 frontman Dhani Harrison. (Shepard is also one of the keynote’s for SXSW Eco talking about art as a tool for change.)
Some of the details of the Culture Collide include an International Festivals Panel regarding festivals from Germany to Russia and latest trends, the Sync Panel with Media Arts Lab, EA Games, Moonlight Music, and others in the lucrative syncing industry, and Beers of the World—test samplers from France, Brazil, and Scotland.
Other highlights include a Label Panel with Capitol, Warner Bros., and Epitaph, Brands and Bands Panel, panel partner-companies including Ernie Ball, men’s lifestyle brand Haggar Clothing Co., and Ontisuka Tiger who will share their approaches to connect their message with musicians and consumers.
