Music2020 was born out of a need to redefine the music business ecosystem – the current model doesn’t work, and we need a new way forward.

Music2020 is a non-profit Organization with a mission of educating the Stakeholders of the Music Industry – including artists, consumers, labels, streaming services, and others – in order to realize our vision for vibrant, fair and transparent music industry.

Music2020’s Three-Point Manifesto:

Compensate Musicians Fairly

The market decides how much it is willing to pay for songs; knowing a fair and relevant amount of profit goes directly to the artist, producer and songwriter.

Re-evaluate the Role of Music Distributors

Radio and Streaming services must redefine their relationship as business partners to artists and labels in the role of marketing and promoting music product.

Create a Truly Egalitarian Playing Field

Where Artists fail or succeed based on their talent and energy, and not the amount of money behind them or their record label influence.
