A full-day conference within the TGE Conference putting the spotlight on the streaming market and how artists and songwriters get paid.
Streaming accounted for 38% of the global recorded music market in 2017. It’s the biggest revenue stream. It’s the fastest growing revenue stream. And yet issues remain with the business model, with the way monies are shared, and with the way everyone gets paid.
