The music industry is growing again, driven in part by digital audio streams. At the same time, explosive growth in connected and voice-activated devices means that access to audio content will soon be ubiquitous. How will this shift impact listeners, advertisers, artists and the industry-at-large.

Come hear directly from Pandora CEO Roger Lynch as he shares key perspectives coming out of his first six months at Pandora, his vision for the company’s future and his predictions of what the increase in music streaming means for the future of the music business. Sony Music Nashville Chairman and CEO Randy Goodman will join Roger on stage to drill into how these changes are impacting music labels, how they will benefit emerging artists, and how they are influencing the future of Country.

Beville Dunkerley, Director of Artist Marketing and Industry Relations at Pandora, will help guide the conversation.
