IMS Engage -- the North American off-shoot of famed industry conference International Music Summit -- returns to Los Angeles on April 21. The annual gathering has become a melting pot of dance music power players, bringing together artists, agents, execs and more for one-on-one panels of unmoderated discussion. Last year, for instance, saw Kaskade in conversation with Stuart Price, as well as Seth Troxler head-to-head with Chuck D.
For the fourth edition of IMS Engage, the conference has elected Marc Geiger, head of music at William Morris Endeavor, in conversation with John MacFarlane, CEO of Sonos, as its first speaker pairing. While Geiger has helped oversee the careers of artists like Rihanna, Tom Petty, and Jack White (in addition to co-founding Lollapalooza), MacFarlane has been at the forefront of the some of the most innovative developments in home speaker technology of the last decade.
