Issue #17  •  September 21  •  view online
Startups and change makers leveraging music and music technology to curate a more creative world.
This week there is somewhat of a lull in the music industry but still some notable articles for you to read.
Tik Tok has taken over the void that left.
Twitch is just another company which still isn’t paying the music industry. I know, I know it is shocking but we will get through this.
Snapchat is on its way to becoming YouTube as they allow publishers (well a select few) to earn money from user generated content.
The startup this week has been around for a bit but I think what they do for shows who aren’t selling tickets is worth a mention. Drumroll please…Jukely. They allow users to subscribe to their app and attend concerts for one flat fee a month. It is a daunting task to become the Netflix of the music industry but their model is very interesting.
Well that’s all for this week. Have a great weekend!
