Using Beatport to Amplify Your Music

Beatport is one of the most important sources for DJs and producers. On the one hand, artists use the platform as an online crate-digging tool; on the other, they use it to have their music downloaded to other artists' USBs. But how do you come out on top in a situation where a sea of DJs is an understatement? And how do you distinguish yourself and your music for other users? Senior Vice President of Creator Services Helen Sartory stars in the Essential Insider Knowledge: Beatport session. Besides Sartory, another speaker from the user end of Beatport joins this keynote, so stay tuned for more announcements.

TuneCore CEO Keynote: Creating Music in the AI Era

TuneCore is one of the leading platforms to give (independent) artists the tools for growth in their careers, following, and distributing. Their development platform for self-releasing artists distributes your music to over 150 digital music stores and streaming services, including Spotify, Apple Music, and Amazon Music. Andreea Gleeson is the Chief Executive Officer of TuneCore and a leading innovator in the music industry. Under her guidance as CEO, TuneCore was recently named the third most innovative company in the music industry by Fast Company. She takes this knowledge to ADE, where she dives into the question on everybody's mind: how can AI help music professionals? Consent, control, and transparency are at the core of TuneCore, so expect the conversation to be opened.

With many more series and sessions following very soon, the ADE Pro programme is rapidly taking shape. Besides the Strategies pillar, the Opportunities, Responsibilities, and Network & Connect tracks dive deep into the most pressing and urgent matters music professionals face in the coming years.
