You’ve all seen someone recording an entire show on their phone instead of watching it. Sure, the video looks great and yes, they get some Likes, but is it worth the distraction? Isn’t it better to just be “in the moment?” Or, is there a chance the moment is only important because it’s been captured? Did the band win you over if they didn’t make your playlist?
Social media has an overarching role in almost every experience millennials have – but does it improve the live concert experience, before, during or after the show? Sometimes life tells us “No” (like the example above) but the funny thing is that the research – giving a voice to those fans – says “Yes.”
At SMW New York, Glenn Minerley, VP Group Account Director, Music and Entertainment Momentum Worldwide, will discuss these questions and themes alongside leaders from StubHub, AEG Global Partnerships, and Atlantic Records. The session, “How Social Has Rocked the Live Music Experience” takes place Wednesday, February 24th at 4:30pm on the FWD Stage at The TimesCenter.
