On Wednesday, May 10th, Relix hosted their first-ever Relix Live Music Conference, which brought together some of the most prominent figures from the music industry to lead panels and discussions on the fast-paced and ever-changing nature of the live music business and how it pertains to venues, festivals, publicity, management, technology, non-profits, and more. The one-day sold-out event took over New York’s Brooklyn Bowl, giving attendees a chance to gain valuable insight from and pick the brains of some of the more noted names in the live music industry. However, perhaps one of the most exciting stand-out moments of the day was the final keynote that closed the conference, which brought together highly successful promoters and live music tycoons Ron Delsener and Peter Shapiro for a conversation moderated by the noted rock-and-roll writer, critic, historian of Rolling Stone fame David Fricke.10 Invaluable Insights From The Relix Live Music Conference Across the one-hour segment, the two legendary promoters share their own personal insight into the business including how they started out and how the times have changed between now and then. The three also share a lot of laughs, with Shapiro and Delsener also swapping stories from throughout their careers.
