Austin Convention Center, Room 10A (500 E Cesar Chavez St) Speaker: Alex White, Ted Cohen, George White, William Mann, John Ingrassia
About: How will artists become famous five years from now? Is the mass marketing machine that broke artists like Michael Jackson, U2 and Radiohead becoming less effective? Artists are still "broken" by traditional radio and mainstream press. Five years from now will this still be the case? What will the top charts look like? Where will those artists come from?
