Futures Accelerator: Music
The Music Accelerator accelerates 3 API music artists, who will receive platform promotion, mentorship, masterclasses, and more offered by some of the biggest names in the industry.
How It Works
The finalists will be selected by a committee of music industry executives (including Sulinna Ong of Spotify, Puja Patel of Pitchfork, Eric Wong of Warner Music Group, Ron Chiu of AEG Presents) and icons (including Far East Movement).
Awardees will receive:
- Firsthand support, amplification, masterclasses, and programming from industry executives
- Opportunity to record Spotify Singles–a series of original artist recordings in Spotify’s in-house studios–subsequently released for streaming
- Artist showcase hosted by AEG Presents
- A Coachella masterclass experience with AEG Presents
- On-going membership as a Gold House Future, including networking opportunities with other Futures across industries
