How the Live Music Industry is Evolving Now with Juan Torres of Prism.fm

How is the live music industry evolving during pandemic restrictions? Juan Torres of Prism.fm works with venues and promoters on the front lines of the crisis, and he’ll be speaking at the Music Tectonics Conference Oct. 27-28 online. What has happened in Austin TX since SXSW kicked off a wave of cancellations and delays? Find out about the Wyoming promoter now holding drive-in rodeos and church services as well as concerts. Dig into the state of live event tech and learn how Prism is helping promoters and venues avoid the headaches of repeated pandemic postponements. Juan explains how Prism’s all-in-one live music management software streamlines every phase, from juggling competing holds in a venue calendar, to sharing stage plots, to speeding up financial settlements at the end of the night. Get Juan’s perspective on the livestreaming boom and the #SaveOurStages effort spearheaded by the National Independent Venue Association (NIVA).
