Music mogul Diplo is inarguably one of the industry’s most talented creatives and businessman. From his side projects Jack Ü, Major Lazer, LSD, and Silk City, to venturing into country music under his Thomas Wesley moniker, to launching his house-focused imprint in Higher Ground, Diplo has covered just about every angle of music writ large.
That’s why Diplo was a natural selection for Hugh Forrest, South By Southwest‘s Chief Programming Officer, to speak at the annual interactive media exposé. He will be joined by fellow music industry tastemakers, including River House Artists’ Lynn Oliver-Cline, Patreon platform founder, Jack Conte, and co-founder of Monotone, Inc./LBI Entertainment, Ian Montone.
Diplo is slated to deliver a speech during South by Southwest’s 2020 edition, held March 13 – 22 in Austin, Texas.
