FRUKT will once again be heading out to Music Matters, the influential Asia Pacific conference that gathers together key players in the global music industry to discuss the entire value chain of the music business.
Over the past seven years, Music Matters has hosted some of the biggest names in the entertainment business, whilst showcasing emerging and renowned international music acts through the Music Matters Live festival. In addition, with the launch of Digital Matters in 2011, the event now also addresses the critical issues of content monetisation and production in the digital age.
