SLIPKNOT's SHAWN 'CLOWN' CRAHAN To Take Part In 'Underground To Mainstream' Panel At POLLSTAR LIVE!

Posted December 6, 2017 by Josh Drespling in Empire Extreme News Feed

SLIPKNOT‘s M. Shawn “Clown” Crahan will take part in the “Underground To Mainstream: What Are Metal And Hip-Hop Doing Right (And Where Does It Go From Here?)” panel at the 2018 Pollstar Live! event.

Metal and hip-hop are two of the most vibrant live genres in the concert business. Of the two genres, urban music has done a better job of crossing over to mainstream appeal, while hard music has managed to tap into passionate fan loyalty to create successful festivals in a wide array of markets.

Experts from both genres will explore how this success has been achieved and what they can teach each other and the business at large during a panel moderated by Josh Bernstein, director of live events, Townsquare Media. Along with Crahan, speakers include Rich Best, president – booking, Los Angeles, Live Nation; Cory Brennan, president, 5B Artist Management; Coolio; Bex Majors, United Talent Agency; and Brent Smith, partner, WME.

Pollstar Live!, the largest gathering of concert industry professionals in the world, takes place February 6-8, 2018 at the InterContinental Los Angeles Downtown.
