A lovely idea to reward the attendees of your event and share some love with those that didn’t. PopTech (web, twitter) has released the first volume of a mixtape collecting a series of live performances that took place during the last few editions. It includes top artists like Rodrigo y Gabriela, Imogen Heap and John Legend.
The album can be listened to online or downloaded from here.
To avoid headaches and guarantee good quality before embarking in a similar initiative for your conference you should:
- triple check on licensing/copyright issues associated with each artist (even if you distribute the mixtape for free –as PopTech does– you need an authorization to feature the music of published musicians)
- make sure you dedicate a bit of extra budget to the recording equipment, so that the outcome is at least decent (otherwise no one will want to listen to it again!)
