Technology is disrupting the music industry. Both artists and labels have to navigate a new landscape that balances between a collapse of music revenue generation as we know it and newly emerging opportunities to substitute old models. Instead of record sales, live performances are now the lifeblood of the industry. The fan is playing a central role in this shift: personal expectation, proximity and price for the consumer are setting trends such as customisation and more immersive dynamic experiences.
