REVOLUTIONIZING THE MUSIC INDUSTRY WITH WEB3



The Primavera Sound Web3 Music Summit took place on June 7th and 8th, 2023, in Madrid. This event had a key focus: fostering collaboration and innovation within the music industry, specifically exploring the emerging relationship between Web3 technology and music.

For the first time at a national level, the summit aimed to bring together diverse stakeholders to delve into the exciting intersection of Web3 and music. The event showcased independent artists who are pioneering their own methods of monetization, asserting control over their data, and managing their royalties more effectively.


A highlight of the summit was the promotion of self-sustaining creative communities and record labels. These new models empower fans to not only invest in their favorite artists and projects but also actively participate in editorial decisions. This concept marks a significant shift from traditional music industry dynamics, offering fans a more engaged and meaningful role in the creative process.


Direct disclosure between artist and audience


Normally, supporting your favorite artists meant buying their records or attending concerts. This model left artists with a fraction of the earnings, and fans with limited engagement.


Cryptocurrency opens the door to direct value transfer from fans to artists. Through NFTs and smart contracts, transactions are transparently recorded and rules are upheld seamlessly. The benefits to fans and artists may differ across platforms, but the result is consistent: artists secure funding, and fans enjoy meaningful returns. No middlemen, no vague distribution. Just a direct, vibrant connection between creators and their supporters.


Say Goodbye to Fake Tickets: How NFTs are Transforming the Future of Music Event Access


Imagine a world where attending your favorite music events is free from the worries of fake tickets and scams. NFTs (Non-Fungible Tokens) might just be the game-changing solution the ticketing industry has been waiting for. An NFT is a digital asset that indicates real-world objects like art, music, in-game items and videos. They are bought and sold online, frequently with cryptocurrency, and they are generally encoded with the same underlying software as many cryptos.


We've all heard the horror stories of concertgoers falling victim to counterfeit tickets or falling for fraudulent schemes. Even the most sophisticated verification methods often fall short, leaving fans disappointed and out of pocket. But what if your ticket was a digital masterpiece, a unique asset that's nearly impossible to replicate?


By integrating NFT technology into ticketing, we could bid farewell to the vulnerabilities that have plagued the system. No more paper tickets that can be easily forged or resold multiple times. Instead, each ticket would be a one-of-a-kind digital collectible – a badge of honor that grants you access to unforgettable experiences.
