REVOLT Chairman Sean Combs joined in on the fun by sitting in the audience for a few panels, including the “Disruptors: The Future of Business” discussion where he engaged panelists Rio Caraeff (President & CEO of Vevo), Kevin McGurn (Chief Revenue Officer of Shazam), Britt Morgan-Saks (Artist Services at Spotify), Alex Ljung (CEO of SoundCloud) and Lars Murray (VP of Music Industry Relations at Pandora) and moderator Kenna about the future of the record business.

Russell Simmons received a standing ovation at the start of Day Two of the Inaugural Revolt Music Conference before leading a sold out crowd in a group meditation during an inspirational keynote address. Simmons encouraged the young group of budding entrepreneurs to stay hungry and appreciate the power of managing one’s mind. Day Two panels featured some of the biggest titans of their perspective industries including Frank Cooper (CMO of Pepsico) and Marc Ecko (Founder & Chief Brand Officer of Complex Media)
discussing “The New Deal: Brands and Artists” and legendary music producer Dallas Austin debating “The Business of Music Publishing” with Jon Platt (President, Warner/Chappell Music), singer-songwriters Ester Dean and James Fauntleroy along with Jessica Rivera (SVP, Head of East Coast Operations of Universal Music Publishing).

REVOLT Chairman Sean “Diddy” Combs led a rousing keynote address entitled “#AskDiddy” in front of a packed house, offering invaluable career insight and advice to the standing-room-only crowd. At the gala dinner, which included a classic performance by Ne-Yo, Diddy presented his good friend and iconic industry executive Jimmy Iovine with the “Started From the Bottom Now We’re Here” Award and spoke at length about his illustrious forty year career. Iovine then gave a riveting speech about the current state of music and the industry’s ever-changing landscape. Said Iovine: “In your own way, reflecting your own musical passions, I do call upon all of you to find your way to innovate and be a part of music’s future…We are no longer in the music business, but in the business of music.”
