Dan Rosen, Ken West, Paul Kelly added to Australian Music Week
ARIA chief executive Dan Rosen, singer-songwriter Paul Kelly and Big Day Out founder Ken West are among the latest to be added to Australian Music Week.
The event runs November 6—10 at Cronulla Beach in Sydney.
Rosen will deliver an end-of-the-decade keynote on the state of the industry, uncovering figures that show how the industry has changed – and where it should go.
At his much-talked-about keynote at BIGSOUND in September, Rosen discussed ARIA’s target to be 5% of the world market by 2030, and the need to flip the percentage of Australian music exports from the current 20:80 to 80:20 by then.
Kelly and West become part of US industry analyst Bob Lefsetz’s live global podcast series.
The veteran singer songwriter’s session is on Saturday, November 9 from 2.00-3.30pm.
West officially opens AMW when he opens up to Lefsetz before delegates on Wednesday, November 6, from 12.15-1.30pm.
Additional panellists are Jodie Williams (music director, Nova Entertainment), Aaron Girgis (Space 44), Will Watson (PS Music Group), Magpie Johnston (Dashville) and Nicola Tan (American Express, director of experiences).
AMW organisers recently announced Michael Chugg (Chugg Entertainment), Roger Field (Live Nation and Owen Orford (New World Artists) among those joining the panel discussion on the State Of Play in the Australian music industry.
Also announced for the panel were Jaddan Comerford (Unified Music Group), Sahara Herald (Frontier Touring), and Tim Worton (ASM Global, previously AEG).
