Followill To Speak at NBN/Digital Summit

Caleb Followill

Next BIG Nashville (NBN) and Leadership Music Digital Summit (LMDS) open today (9/28) with a packed line-up of events, including a music festival and conference featuring a just-announced keynote from Kings of Leon frontman Caleb Followill. The Artist Keynote will take place on Thursday, September 30 at The Curb Event Center at Belmont University at 4:30 pm.

Also on September 30, the Summit will address the issue of Net Neutrality in a conversation entitled, “Pipes, Capitalism, and Creativity: Is Middle East Peace Easier?,” moderated by Mitch Bainwol, Chairman/CEO of the RIAA. In this exclusive face-off, key players from every conceivable side (ISP’s, Content Providers, Creatives, Public Interest Groups…) of the debate come together in what promises to be a lively and provocative exchange on the issue of a “free” internet vs. freedom through corporate control. The panel features Christian Castle, Managing Partner, Christian L. Castle, Attorneys; Jim DeLong, Visiting Fellow, DigitalSociety.org; Mike McKeehan, Verizon; Julie Samuels, Staff Attorney, Electronic Freedom Foundation; Derek Slater, Senior Policy Analyst, Google Inc.; and Alex Curtis, Public Knowledge.

The multi-genre music festival and digital conference runs through Oct. 2. Check musicrow.com for more coverage as the event unfolds. Full schedule here.
