Back in the 90’s, young adults gathered around Televisions to watch music videos, live performances and daily countdowns of chart topping songs. Today, kids watch cable TV on their laptops, tablets, and phones on platforms like Hulu and Netflix, and find and share content on their own terms across a plethora of devices and platforms.
In October 2013, Sean Combs launched REVOLT.tv, a new cable channel poised to revive music television for the information age. REVOLT integrates broadcast television and realtime social media content, allowing viewers to interact with artists and TV personalities across platforms.
The panel will feature the REVOLT.tv executives spearheading this revolution in content programming in conversation with Huge. The panel will discuss the rise and fall of music television, the power of engagement, and how to effectively integrate social media into a seemingly one-sided platform. This event will also feature performances by local, independent New York musicians in support of independent artists, embodying the spirit of innovation and diversity of REVOLT.tv. This event targets social media managers, content producers, musicians (or music lovers), and anyone interested in learning how to transform social engagement.
