On Saturday, REVOLT ended its final day for its Inaugural Music Conference. Russell Simmons received a standing ovation at the start of day two before leading a sold out crowd in a group meditation during an inspirational keynote address. Simmons encouraged attendees 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).
Diddy, REVOLT Chairman, 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 industry executive Jimmy Iovine with an award and spoke at length about his illustrious forty year career. Iovine then gave a rousing speech about the current state of music and the industry’s ever-changing landscape.
The final day also included a tricked-out pool part.
