'Technology and music are getting along famously': Zane Lowe signs up for Music Week Tech Summit

Zane Lowe

Apple Music global creative director Zane Lowe will star in the closing keynote session at the Music Week Tech Summit Together With O2 on October 8.

Lowe, also the talent behind Apple’s global livestream, Beats 1, and a former Radio 1 DJ, will be in conversation with Music Week editor Mark Sutherland on the subject of ‘Keeping The Humanity In Music’. Lowe will talk about how he and his team use technology and data in harness with passion and gut instinct to create the ultimate environment for music discovery.

Lowe is the latest huge name to sign up for the Tech Summit, held at The O2 and now in its second year. He joins the likes of Joe Kessler, global head of UTA IQ; Vanessa Bakewell, global client partner at Facebook; and Amazon Music UK director Paul Firth for what’s set to be a ground-breaking day of discussions between the music and tech sectors.

“I always love seeing Music Week and I’m really happy to be part of the experience,” said Lowe. “I’m looking forward to being at the event. Technology and music are getting along famously and there’s no looking back.”

At last year’s event, more than 300 delegates gathered to hear the likes of Amazon Music’s Alex Luke, Kobalt’s Rian Liebenberg and Island Records’ Claire Mas debate the tech issues of the day. To relive the highlights, click here.
