Warren Haynes, Skrillex, former Grateful Dead manager Rock Scully and more will participate in the 10th annual Billboard Touring Conference’s Keynote Case Study, which will examine the Grateful Dead’s impact on contemporary touring across a variety of genres. The panel will be moderated by Paradigm agent Jonathan Levine.

As record sales have fallen dramatically over the past few years, plenty of modern artists have come to see the benefits of the Grateful Dead’s touring model. The band pioneered the the use of alternating setlists, live recordings, community communication, direct-to-fan ticketing and plenty of other tactics that have become more common in the digital age. In recent years, many have come to realize that the Grateful Dead were pioneers of business, as well as music. A few books have even been written on the subject, including David Meerman Scott’s Marketing Lessons from the Grateful Dead: What Every Business Can Learn from the Most Iconic Band In History.

While the idea of Warren Haynes and Skrillex teaming up to talk about the Grateful Dead might sound completely insane, it makes sense when you take into account the fact that Skrillex, like many of his contemporaries, has made a name for himself on the road. As studio releases have become less and less viable as a source of revenue, more acts like Skrillex have found the bulk of their commercial success in the live arena. The producer’s agent, AM Only’s Lee Anderson (who will also take part in the panel), actually got his start booking funk and jamband shows.

The 10th annual Billboard Touring Conference will take place at the Roosevelt Hotel in New York City on November 13 and 14. In related news, Pink Floyd co-founder Roger Waters will do the event’s Keynote Q&A.

Warren Haynes & Skrillex Talk Grateful Dead

November 22, 2013

Warren Haynes and Skrillex headlined a panel at Billboard's Touring Conference that discussed the lessons learned from the Grateful Dead. Along with Paradigm Agency's Jonathan Levine, former Grateful Dead manager Rock Scully, Bay-area promoter Gregg Perloff, Windish Agency rep Sam Hunt and agent Lee Anderson, Haynes and Skrillex dished on all things Grateful Dead and how the band helped shape the touring model many bands still use today.

Skrillex, who explained he grew up in San Francisco and that his parents were Dead fans, said he too regularly employs the Dead’s improvisational ethos. “I don’t just hit play on the space bar and let it play the whole set,” he said, “I mix every song--and I do mess up. I’m changing my set every night and producing new records on the tour bus to test out -- so it is very much in the moment.” Haynes credited the Grateful Dead as the inspiration for his band's "Mule Tracks," which offers soundboard quality copies of every show.

Other topics discussed included the benefits of in-house ticketing, major labels, mainstream media, and touring models. Watch a clip below.
