A Front Row Seat to Live Music’s Future with StageIt’s Stephen White

In this week’s episode, Stephen White, CEO of StageIt, sits down with host Dmitri Vietze to explore how StageIt, a global ticketed live streaming platform, is setting the stage for the future of virtual performances.

Like poker chips or game tokens, StageIt has gamified ticketing and tipping to keep fans engaged and optimize the monetary value of live performances for artists. Discover how StageIt is creating more ways for the artists and fans to have authentic connections with backstage, behind-the-scenes content and opportunities to win exclusive prizes on the tipping leaderboard. Find out why much like the dawn of televised sports, Stephen White predicts the future of live music is hybrid, both virtual and in person. How will these shifts affect audience demographics? How can artists embrace their creativity with decreased days on tour? Get Stephen's take on hot topics like NFTs and gamification. Tune in for exclusive information about the 2021 Music Tectonics Conference.
