How should the streaming-income be distributed
Many people think, that Spotify and other streaming-services should distribute the income from premium-customers through a so-called user centric -model, instead of the current pro rata -model. What's the difference, and should the model be changed? There has already been a survey about the matter in Norway, and the panel will also reveal the findings of this survey.
Panelists: Lottaliina Pokkinen (Suomen Muusikkojen Liitto ry), Markus Nordenstreng (Elvis ry), Arnt Maasø (University of Oslo), Tom Pannula (Playground Music Oy)
Thursday 6.10.

Nordics - The Streaming Superpower
Streaming services have lifted the global music markets to a rise - and the Nordics were the first to embrace the change. How has this affected the Nordic markets' global standing? Nordic major and indie labels' representatives discuss the Nordic countries role as a testing platform for streaming, their artist export and how it has changed the labels' actions and decisions. Lukas Graham's success will be discussed as an artist export example.
Moderator: Francine Gorman (Nordic Playlist)

More International Summit topics revealed in Music & Media Finland

The European live music industry will be discussed in two topics this year. "Festival Exports - How Brands travel" will discuss the recent phenomenon of strong festival brands conquering new cities and markets. Represented are at least Lollapalooza Berlin and Weekend Festival.

Radicalization and political instability are increasingly affecting our everyday lives. The foundations of EU are shaking, Europe is not unanimously welcoming and open-minded and the fear for our personal security has had an effect on how we move about and perceive things. "Building Walls - Global Crises and the Live Music Industry" will discuss how the recent events and political turbulence in and around Europe have affected and will change the live music industry from the perspective of security, artists' and concert-goers' experience as well as the economy.


On the topic of music synchronization, "The Anatomy of Film Trailer Music" will shed light on the creative process of film trailers from both the music supervisors' and the music writers' sides. "What Were They Syncing?" will look at stories behind successful music placements in worldwide advertisement campaigns, games and films. For example, how to make a chewing gum ad a worldwide viral hit will be discussed with the music supervisor of the Extra Gum commercial featuring a cover recording of "Can't Help Falling In Love" among other great sync cases.

Full panel lineups and more topics to be announced soon.

In Get Synced! Workshops, the music supervisors at International Summit will present their current projects and shed light on what they're currently looking for. The participants will try to meet the needs of the music supervisors and send songs they represent to be discussed at the workshop to find out possible uses for their songs.
