IMS Engage announces Pete Tong in conversation with Bob Lefsetz
IMS Engage’s speaker list for 2016 is shaping up nicely. After previously announcing panels with Marc Geiger, Head of Music at WME, in conversation with John MacFarlane, CEO of Sonos, as well as James Barton, President of Electronic Music at Live Nation, in conversation with Lee Anderson, East Coast Vice President of AM Only, the Los Angeles edition of the famed International Music Summit has thrown Pete Tong and Bob Lefsetz into the mix.
Pete Tong hardly requires an introduction at this point — as the famed voice of BBC Radio 1’s Essential Mix and Essential Selection, Tong has captivated audience’s attentions for decades on-air. Outside of radio, he co-founded both IMS and the electronic music division at WME. Tong will square off with Bob Lefsetz, the author of the iconic ‘Lefsetz Letter’ and easily one of the most candid (and outspoken) personalities in the music industry, for the newly announced panel.
IMS Engage takes place the W Hotel Hollywood on April 21. Tickets are available here.
