Music & 20 more –  come see our 21 Summits at Web Summit.

I’d be pretty sure that a former member of Swedish House Mafia, the President of Pixar, the CTO of Facebook, the Author of the Da Vinci Code & the winner of the Tour de France have never been in the same room. This could well happen at Web Summit in November. Steve Angello is among the names we’re announcing today for Music Summit – he’s joined by producers, managers & those creating technologies that will define the next generation of music.
