LÜM Launch,

  • About the event

    On August 17th, 2018, LÜM will be celebrating our nationwide application release at the Monona Terrace in Madison, Wisconsin. This event, LÜM Launch Party, is in alignment with the 2018 Forward Technology Festival that will attract 2,000 professional entrepreneurs from the tech world, business world, and music world.

    To give a brief synopsis of LÜM, we are a music discovery and streaming platform that is built on a social network. Our application focuses on up and coming artists around the nation and provides the ability for users to discover, share, and circulate music. We seek to decrease the disparity in exposure between corporate music and new music, and link communities to the undiscovered music that is all around them. By rethinking the interaction between social media and streaming, we hope that LÜM will eventually become a live entertainment “talent pool” for up and coming music around the country.

    We are expecting our attendance to surpass 600 attendees, most of which are community influencers. Beyond this, we will have media coverage and recognition leading up to and during the entirety of the event.

    Why should you sponsor?

    By sponsoring this event, you gain access to the largest group of musicians in the music industry. Moreover, our application is targeted towards the Generation Z and Millennials. We are heavily marketing these demographics and will give our sponsor the ability to partner with a company that has built an app specifically focused on the wants of these generational cohorts. Lastly, by using fans as a catylst for music discovery, compared to AI and predictive technology, LÜM will turn fans into the most powerful and accurate A&R system known. 

    We offer sponsorship for the specific event, but outside of this, we offer a very beneficial long-term partnership possibility.
