Is VR the new frontier for music videos?
Seattle music fans: Pixvana is making an appearance at Upstream Music Fest + Summit at the Upstream Summit Startup Showcase! The Startup Showcase will highlight four startups, including Pixvana, that are using emerging technology to disrupt the music industry.
Our CEO Forest Key will speak on the Upstream Startup Showcase panel, taking place on Thursday, May 11th, at 11AM – 12PM and 2:30PM – 3:30PM.
Bands aren’t the only ones in the music industry to start out in a garage. Some of the biggest players in music today, from Amazon to Spotify, began as scrappy startups. The Upstream Startup Showcase highlights a select group of startups that will continue to disrupt the music industry in increasingly significant ways in the coming years. From remix culture and harnessing the power of social video to creating immersive experiences and new revenue streams at live events, this year’s startups are finding new ways for artists, venues and labels to create larger fan followings and promote their music. Venture capital veterans from Vulcan Capital and Madrona Venture Partners will moderate this unique panel, bringing insights into how these startups are utilizing technology and new business models to shape the future of the music industry.
Come find our booth to see how VR changes the way we experience music and check out the panel for a thought-provoking discussion on how these startups (including us!) are shaping the future of the music industry.
