“Why the Global Music Industry Needs China” (SXSW panel discussion)

Date: Friday 16 March, 5pm
RSVP: TBA
Venue: Austin Convention Center, Room 17A (500 E Cesar Chavez, Austin, TX; map here)

This panel will discuss the importance China currently plays and will play in the near future in the global music industry. Practitioners from very different areas of the music business will explain their involvement with the Chinese music market and why they think the world can benefit from China’s fast development. We will explore how musically China has already caught up in less than 30 years what took more than 60 years in the West, and try to elucidate what will happen in the next 30 years. Will China take away the musical spotlight from the USA/UK, or will it follow Japan’s footsteps and be the promise that never really took off? Are Korea’s current crop of pop stars something of an omen?
