Brooke Michael Kain is the Chief Digital Officer at AEG Presents. AEG Presents is one of the largest providers of live music in the country: producing or supporting over 40 music festivals and managing and booking more than 80 clubs and theatres. Kain may have one of the coolest tech jobs out there and she is a big believer in the empowering nature of tech for the music industry.
Streaming technology has driven a rapid evolution of the music industry, but it can mean many different things for different audiences. For consumers, it has delivered more convenient access to a wider variety of music. For artists, the technology acts as a greater self-service platform. For labels, it translates into more promotional outlets and revenue streams.
