Marc Geiger, former head of music at WME, has been announced as this year’s iFF Keynote, in conversation with Goldman Sachs Lisa Yang. The keynote unites two visionary thinkers for a unique session at a busy virtual edition of IFF, which sees leading figures from across music festival and agency worlds taking part.
