- Technology is fundamentally impacting live entertainment. In a landscape of increasingly fragmented music preferences, the ease of discovering artists/shows has increased, but the passion for attending a live performance has not. Throw in billions of online videos, instant access to film libraries and TV broadcasts, 500+ cable channels, social networking sites, online gaming, etc. and it’s no surprise that it’s become very difficult to fill music venues to capacity. What is the prescription to cure this ailment?

Jared Siegel Head of Digital Azoff Music Management Rick Farman Superfly Presents RICK FARMAN began promoting concerts at the age of 17 at small clubs in New York City. After moving to New Orleans to attend Tulane University, he formed Superfly Productions along with Jonathan Mayers. Promoting concerts primarily during Jazzfest and Mardi Gras, Superfly built a strong niche in the New Orleans market. In 2002, the company created the Bonnaroo Music Festival which won accolades from both the fans (selling out both the 02 & 03 event in under three weeks), the industry (winning the 2002 Pollstar Festival of the Year Award), and the press (Rolling Stone called last year's event "The American rock festival to end all festivals.") Superfly also manages the New Orleans based band Galactic, which is a major theatre and club attraction throughout the country. Ashley Capps Pres/CEO AC Entertainment
