Watch James Barton and Lee Anderson discuss the state of electronic music at IMS Engage (Exclusive)
On April 21, International Music Summit hosted the fourth edition of their annual Los Angeles convention, IMS Engage. The conference has made a name for itself by pitting high-level industry figures head-to-head for intimate, hour-long panels. The flagship pairing of 2016 saw James Barton, President of Electronic Music at Live Nation, in conversation with Lee Anderson, East Coast Vice President of AM Only.
In a rare, promoter vs agent pairing, the panel finds two of the dance world’s most powerful executives discussing everything from multi-genre festivals, to the growing importance of live performance over DJ sets. There’s a wealth of knowledge to be gained from the talk, and the entire segment is worth a watch for anyone interested in the future of the electronic music industry.
Next up, IMS heads to Ibiza for their global summit on May 25-27. Tickets are available here.
