From Dutch DJ Sets to US creators: A One Way Pay-Street


The process of collecting royalties from DJ sets is a tricky one in the US. Data collection processes often obscure what songs are played at festivals, making it difficult for the creator to get paid what they’re due.

In The Netherlands, where electronic music is deeply woven into the social fabric, music creators have a firm grasp on their performance royalties collection, due to smart fingerprinting technology.

This is about the emancipation of the creator. Expect an expert moderator, a high performing creator and an international publisher to join the discussion.
