From October 9-11, the SoundCloud Creator Forum will feature panels, workshops, mixers and a live music showcase at Mike WiLL Made-It’s EarDrummers Studio in Atlanta. Lisa Ellis, SoundCloud’s SVP and Global Head of Music, Artist Relations and Label Services, will kicks things off with a keynote conversation alongside longtime label executive L.A. Reid and Q&A founder and CEO Troy Carter.
“Everyday we celebrate the millions of artists and fans who choose SoundCloud first. The SoundCloud Creator Forum is one more way we celebrate and extend our rich community experience deeper into Rap, Hip-Hop, R&B, DJ and other thriving global music scenes showcased at A3C,” Ellis said in a press release. “We are proud to have the opportunity to elevate this amazing talent, and offer artists as many resources as possible to create music, connect with fans and grow their careers.”
Day one of the forum will be focused on the streaming service’s SC101 education series. Panels will feature SoundCloud staff members, artists such as Sonny Digital and KOTA The Friend, and executives from Atlantic Records and ASCAP.
The second day is scheduled to be a social mixer with streaming demos and workshops. The finale of SoundCloud’s three-day event is a musical showcase with performances by Pote Baby, Rico Pressley, Karlae, Mango Foo, Blaatina, Duwap Kaine and K$upreme.
