Crowdfunding has become a household name in music industries. Though, if you are following that road… how to be sure to achieve your goals? Is Crowdfunding something that anyone can benefit from, as long as it’s managed and executed the right way around?
The audience of all2gethernow will be able not only to be introduced into two different case studies, one launched at PledgeMusic and the other one at inkubato.com. Beyond case studies, the audience will also get the chance to ask about how to get a project started themselves, and to learn more about what to do – and what not.

But, that’s not all: “Berlinized”, currently crowdfunding its finalization at inkubato.com, will be presented by director Lucian Busse by a 10min trailer – so be one of the first to see the music documentary before it hits the screens in April 2012!

Berry Plasman (better known as Beee to most), is an entrepeneur and has done several different things in music. He started one of the first dance websites in Holland in 2000, called www.dance-magazine.com, for which he did most of the digital photography (which was rare in those days). Around the same time he started Rub.ber Travel, a company which offers party trips to events in Germany like Time Warp, SonneMondSterne, Melt! Festival, Nature One and others. Now 10 years in, he’s still very active in bringing Dutch people to German events. His first contact with streaming audio came in 2003 when he was working for Club Chemistry, being in charge of recording the events and putting them online. Meanwhile Dance-Guide merged with LiveSets.com where he got more and more into live streaming. After that he went to work for the Amsterdam club Studio 80 where he helped setup the streaming part for the club/radio studio and hosted his own online radio show with Lauhaus, Boris Werner, Melon and Aron Friedman. For the past years he has been a (free lance) consultant for FCA Music, which organizes Free Your Mind Festival and Rockit Open Air, but most of his time he spends working for DJ Monitor, an audio recognition company. He’s working as an ambassador trying to gather content for its recognition database and getting support from rights owner and rights users for a more transparent way to renumerate producers/authors.
