Listening figures for streaming music services keep increasing year on year, especially with younger audiences. How do some of these different services see the future of music streaming? Spotify aim to provide users with the right music for every moment, and to "soundtrack your life”. What are their latest innovations, and how are they staying ahead of the game in a highly competitive marketplace? Meanwhile Mixcloud is "rethinking radio for listeners, curators, and brands alike” by connecting listeners to new music and ideas through radio shows, DJ mixes and Podcasts. Their model is very different, but it also forms a part of a growing 'streaming music eco-system’.  In this session both companies will present their vision of the future of music streaming.
