Live event producer SFX Entertainment and leading US media company Clear Channel announced their new partnership focussing on electronic Dance music a few hours ago. In detail: the partnership of these two EDM-global-players will focus on three main initiatives in 2014 such as a nationwide talent search for DJs, a live event series in cooperation with Clear Channel and a weekly top 20 Beatport countdown to air on Clear Channel stations nationwide.
“It always stunned me that there wasn’t a closer relationship between radio and live entertainment,” said Mr. Sillerman in an interview, declining to disclose the terms of the agreement. Even decades ago, he said, “I believed there was great connection between them.”
