In order to expand its landscape, WMW will also be introducing a new pillar, Connect: China, in collaboration with electronic music China Pioneer, Paul Neuteboom (CEO, BrotherHood Music, China) to bridge the Chinese electronic music industry with the rest of Asia.
The rise of new technologies has increased our consumption of music content at a rapid pace, thus enabling trends to come and go faster than ever, creating new barriers and disruption within the music industry. The theme aspires to inspire conversations, bringing the industry together to explore new methods to maintain the sustainability of electronic music in today’s modern world, said John Beh, founder of Wired Music Week.
Prepare for a bigger announcement in the coming months including the full lineup of headliners, keynote speakers, and activity schedules as this is just the starting for WMW in 2020.
