The Concept

Where music meets technology

MassiveMusic and TNW are delighted to present Music Summit, an entirely new and specially curated three hour program that will take place on the second day of TNW Conference 2017 in the Dome.

It's no mystery that music and tech have always gone hand in hand, now more than ever. Enlisting a unique combination of tech legends and music pioneers, the Music Summit will aim to inspire decision makers, industry leaders and creatives with stories born at the intersection of music and technology. 

The program’s line-up includes speakers like Hardwell (DJ, record producer), Molly Neuman (Head of Music, Kickstarter), Colin Benders (Musician, Composer and Producer), Poppy Crum (Chief Scientist, Dolby Labs), and Henry Daw (UI/UX Sound Specialist). They will each be imparting key insights on how brands, advertisers and creatives from their respective fields can harness the power of sound and music through the latest trends in technology. Besides inspiration and entertainment, the program is also meant to highlight the importance of music, key to brand consistency and crucial for brands who are trying to cut through the noise emotionally.
