Meet the Artists Up Next
Meet a dynamic range of artists who are up next from coast to coast. These are the essential new and rising artists poised to make a major impact. The conversation will dive into the challenges musicians have to overcome to stay relevant on the music scene and what's next to conquer on their journey.

The State of Independent Music
Independent artists are generating upward of $2B due to democratized access to tools that are levelling the playing field. This puts major pressure on record labels to evolve their deal structures in order to incentivize independent artists and labels to move back under their umbrella.

We exist to celebrate diversity and to help innovative and creative people achieve their dreams.
We are manifesting our vision between the blurred lines of the physical and metaphysical worlds. We’re a community of misfits who aren’t afraid to fail. We aren’t afraid to push boundaries. We aren’t afraid to challenge the status quo. The world 100 years ago looked completely different than it does today and that will be the case for the next 100. We’re building C-Tribe to be at the forefront of web3 culture and to do that requires a whole new set of rules.
Take care of our people – our community comes first. Always. We pride ourselves on operating in underserved communities and being a platform for underestimated people. By standing up for them, they show out for us. This is our superpower.
Collisions, culture, connections, commerce – the future of community lives at the intersection of these four things. C-Tribe is uniquely positioned to explore and build on this.
Inspire and innovate – By framing the way we want to change the world, we can experiment with new ideas and positively criticize the status quo. By developing inspiring things for our collective, anything is possible.
