ROCKONOMICS REVISITED: THE RISE OF MUSIC STREAMING SERVICES
AND THE EFFECT ON THE CONCERT INDUSTRY
Adam Fer & Barbara Baarsma
According to Krueger (2005) the main reason for concert ticket prices for popular music to show a sharp increase between 1996 and 2003 is that artists felt less constrained from increasing prices due to the erosion of the complementary relationship with album sales. This paper continues his analysis in a more current context by
focusing on how the rise of music streaming services has influenced concert ticket prices and revenues, while also providing a brief analysis on the effects of the economic crisis.

THE DISTINCTIVENESS OF ELECTRONIC DANCE MUSIC. CHALLENGING MAINSTREAM
ROUTINES AND STRUCTURES IN THE MUSIC INDUSTRIES
Job van der Velden & Erik Hitters
To what extent is the Dance (or EDM) genre distinctive, when compared to the structures currently present in the dynamic music industries? We have combined a literature review with a qualitative analysis through interviews with prominent Dutch Dance label owners, in order to answer this question. The analysis shows that the Dance genre is not compatible with the existing models developed by Negus and Hesmondhalgh, used to explain the structures and the (power-) division within the music industry. The article looks at the unique characteristics (e.g. the 'digitally born' nature, the absence of majors and the live revenue focus) of this genre and what this has meant, and means, amidst all digital advances, for its development.
