We live in a time where audiences are built through social media, playlists and digital influence - none of which aren’t limited by territory boundaries. Pre-COVID, quick expansion meant touring but with that off the table, how can artists leverage digital tools to expand their audiences globally? 

This panel brings together a diverse group of thinkers who’ve broken artists on a global level to discuss the challenges they and their teams face when they scale to new audiences.

How do you find influence in territories where you don’t know anyone? How do you do it on a limited budget? What are the best tools to get there? How do you decide which markets to go into? How do you respect the culture? Do you need boots on the ground? 

Join us for practical advice from global industry leaders covering the USA, UK, China, India and more.
