These include dialogues with major industry players such as TikTok, Spotify and Universal Music Group, and talks concerning topics ranging from the growth of China’s live music scene during the COVID-19 pandemic to the opportunities Web3 may open for music in the region (in a panel taking place under the banner of Web3 Matters).
