One of the most pioneering executives for digital music discovery, Tim Westergren has been a champion for independent musicians since he co-founded Pandora more than 20 years ago and spent years as its CEO. His latest venture, Sessions, is a live-streaming platform that launched a year ago this month that has helped emerging musicians participate in the digital touring economy during the COVID-19 crisis. In this exclusive keynote, Tim will share lessons learned from a year’s worth of quarantine concerts, plans for Sessions’ recently announced $75 million marketing fund for independent artists and what live events might look like after lockdown.
