Event description

Description

Social media has smashed through the ‘PR agency wall’ that once divided artists and fans.

We live in a world where a 60-second melody posted on social media can secure you a record deal and where we now feel closer to our favourite artists thanks to Twitter, Instagram and SnapChat.

But if you take a closer look at your social feed and you might see something more calculated happening. Artists stunting for ‘likes’, emotive rants and beef instigating memes, all highlight the unfiltered and sometimes unpleasant reality of social media’s impact on the music industry.

To help us dissect the good, the bad and the viral impact of social media in the music industry, we (LAFV) have curated an experienced and diverse panel including:

  • Jordon WiFi - Rapper and founding member of Last Night in Paris, one of London’s most creative music collectives. Jordon has spearheaded the group's partnerships with Nike and Fendi, had a leading role in the collective's latest single '$uper' and also starred in their short film 'Equal' viewed over 205k times on YouTube & Vimeo
  • Tasha Demi - Marketing Manager at RCA Records (Sony Music). Tasha is a creative that currently works as a music marketeer and journalist. Having started her journey in 2010, she has worked at a number of companies including Universal Music, MTV, Channel 4, Jump Off TV, MOBO Awards.
  • Derren Sequeira - Head of Entertainment at Facebook UK, responsible for building long term partnerships with major labels as well as building strategy for Facebook’s growth in Music.
