AFEM Presents – Get Played Get Paid: How the rise of Music Recognition Technology at DJ Events could put money in your pocket


Panel info:  AFEM’s Get Played Get Paid campaign has a simple objective  - when electronic music is played in clubs or at festivals by DJs, the people who make the music and own the rights should be paid the royalties due. Clubs and festivals all over the world pay license fees to Performing Right Organization (PROs) and neighboring right organizations (NROs) for the music played at events, but attaining accurate DJ setlist information has, historically, proved a challenge for these organization.  Without comprehensive music reporting, the royalties cannot be paid out accurately to creators and rightsholders of the music actually played. Over the 4 years since our Get Played Get Paid campaign began, we have seen a growing number of PROs & NROs adopting or trialing Music Recognition Technology services for the purpose of identifying the music played. This panel will provide insights into how royalties are generated from DJ events, the different technology solutions being adopted, and the challenges involved in the process of creating accurate royalty payments.

Testimonials

I first went to WMC ’87, the year I started Big Beat. It was an incredibly inspiring congregation of indie labels, DJs, artists, songwriters, producers and dance music lovers dedicated to breaking and discovering new music. WMC has been instrumental in furthering the dance and electronic cause; keeping the community connected, vital and relevant, and serving as an amazing springboard for talent. It’s a fantastic crucible for the future of dance music. Long may it live.


Craig Kallman

CEO & Co-Chairman Atlantic Records, Founder Big Beat Records

“Winter Music Conference is my ground zero. It has always provided the perfect storm of opportunity and excitement for up and coming artists, including myself back in 2003, where I first caught a glimpse of how it felt to have an audience respond to my work. Over the years, I’ve always made it a point to have WMC in my calendar because that’s the spot where everyone congregates and you can feel it in the air. Creativity, brother and sisterhood, FUN and most of all the chance to come together as a community and celebrate the reason we are all here—the music.”

Before there was Ultra Music Festival, there was The Winter Music Conference, the annual coming together of the dance music tribes. Miami in March is a fundamental place to be from a business perspective, and has always given me endless opportunities for discovering new partnerships and talent. WMC brings together the dance music industry and surrounding culture like no other event in America. I’ve been attending WMC for nearly 20 years, and I’m very much looking forward to experiencing its evolution in 2019.

Partner/founder, Deckstar Artist Management

WMC is and has always been the lifeblood of the dance music scene. Never missed a year since ’96, I can’t imagine Amsterdam Dance Event or Ibiza Music Summit existing without the blueprint that WMC originated. Seeing this revived is absolutely essential to reunifying the North American scene surrounding electronic music and its fringes.
