Music didn’t kill the data star! - The Digital Communication in Music and Festivals (SA365 - Maria Manuel, Marina Faria e Margarida Pinto)

The communication and digital marketing nowadays have an unquestionable importance in the creation, dissemination and consumption of music. Communication decisions that are data driven show us how we can bring artists, brands and consumers together. Only by strategically claiming space in the new digital ecosystems will it be possible to gain exposure to listeners and new listeners in addition to background noise.
