Spotify has launched Co.Lab, a new Spotify for Artists event series designed to connect artists and their teams with experts in various segments of the music industry, including label reps, tour experts and creative directors. The series aims to help artists build networks and to better understand the modern music industry.
Every Co.Lab event will be organized around a particular theme in the music business today. Experts will draw on their experience, offering practical advice and insider knowledge on the most meaningful topics facing artists.
Our first season of Co.Lab will take place over the coming months in New York and Los Angeles.
Topics will include Collaboration, Release Strategies, Touring, Merch, and Revenue Streams. Featured speakers include Annie Flook (Dir. Touring & Artist Development, Atlantic Records), Malia James (Video Music Director), Jenny Swiatowy (VP, Head of Creative Sync Licensing, Capitol Music Group), Jamal Dauda (Global Head of Music, WeTransfer), Jeff Ellis (Studio Engineer), Christian Coffey (Tour Director), Mitra Khayyam (Creative Director), Loric Sih (Live DJ for Kelela), Alex Gvojic (Lighting Designer), Kacie Lehman (SVP of Partnerships for MAC Presents), Morgan Rhodes (Music Supervisor), Sam Hockley-Smith (Music Editor for Vulture), Laura Escudé (Ableton-Certified Trainer and Live Show Designer), and more. Panels will be moderated by Frosty (Founder of dublab) and Mindy Abovitz-Monk (Founder of Tom Tom Magazine).
Applications are now open for the first five events. Applicants should be at least 21 years old and verified on Spotify for Artists. As each event has a limited capacity, artists with 1,000 or more Spotify followers will be given priority.
