Canadian Music Week (CMW) has announced that AEG North America President Rick Mueller will do a keynote interview at the 2018 Music Summit, with Bob Lefsetz doing the questioning.

Under North American president Rick Mueller, AEG Presents has made headlines and entertained under-served audiences on both coasts with new festivals and revamped venues. Whether it’s a big-ticket one-off like Desert Trip (which grossed $160 million in 2016), or the Panorama Festival on New York City’s Randall’s Island (which this year features the likes of Janet Jackson, The Weeknd and The Killers) or the acquisition of storied concert venues like the Santa Barbara Bowl or the Saratoga Mountain Winery, Mueller’s footprint on the live music experience is deep. In this Lefsetz session, Mueller will talk about how AEG Presents and its many partners has built a bond with concert audiences.

The interview will be held on Friday, May 11 at 11:10 a.m. at the Sheraton Centre Hotel as part of the Music Summit’s Live Touring Track.

For 2018, CMW has expanded the Music Summit industry conference to four days, running May 9-12 at the Sheraton Centre Hotel in downtown Toronto. Among the wide-ranging music industry topics on the schedule are streaming revenues, blockchain’s uses and potential in the music industry, the future of VR/AR content, the power of streaming playlists, as well as spotlights on the USA and other countries. In addition, the Mentor’s Café and Start Up Launch Pad will return.
