The Future is Independent!

Dick de Groot (Founder, Be Yourself Music), Lisa Hresko (General Manager, A2IM), Luciano Winter (Founder, Rotterdam Airlines), Mattijs van Welzenis (Head of Recordings, Cloud 9 Music)

Moderator: Kees van Weijen (Chairman, STOMP)

With a market share close to 40% worldwide in all genres and over 60% in EDM, there is no denying possible; independent artists and labels are solid partners and growing market share worldwide. But why is independent music doing so well these days? To what extend can artists grow their own careers independently? And why do so many artists prefer to work with independent labels? During this panel, hosted by the Dutch trade association for independent record labels (STOMP), experts will discuss the value and benefits of the independent music industry in 2022 and beyond.
