Sony Music Entertainment US Latin today announced a new 360 platform in 2015 featuring multiple crossover artists designed as much to galvanize fans as it is to appeal to brands.
The Filtr LIVE platform is built with brands in mind, providing them unique ways to interact, promote, activate and be part of the story. The company says the move is indicative of a dramatic paradigm shift at Sony Music Latin.

“We’re changing the way we conduct business—from how we promote artists, engage more directly with fans by providing snackable and shareable content, and also how we partner with brands to help leverage our artists to drive experiences,” says Nir Seroussi, President of Sony Music US Latin. “Increasingly our eye is on developing new platforms that really leverage digital. We understand that the Hispanic millennial is key and we see them interact daily with our artists - with Filtr LIVE we are bringing the fans and artists closer to brands via a true 360 model.”
Doing away with the concept of “just another tour sponsorship,” Filtr LIVE will feature key millennial artists and will be heavily focused on digital, social and mobile activations and media inclusive and integrated with brands. The company says it’s a natural fit. The artists themselves are millennials and they’re already hyper-connected to their fans, creating and socializing content and making great music.
For Sony artists the Filtr LIVE provides a platform to engage with brands in a more holistic way by leveraging Sony’s media and promotional capabilities and by using their own social media clout to activate fans to be part of the adventure.
Brands will activate in unique and compelling ways including:
Organic brand integrations from pre-production, on the road with the bands, backstage access and with the fans at the events – to allow the brand to “live like a rock star” and become fully immersed in the story of the artistsLicensed content that brands can amplify via their own media and marketing outletsBehind-the-scenes digital content generation and unscripted webisode seriesLive streams and VOD platform with pre, post and long tail promotional opportunitiesSpecially branded YouTube channelBranded Filtr playlists on Spotify and fan curated “what’s next on the tour”Fan contests and online activationsMobile application with fan club, chat rooms, games, playlists, store, music news, music streaming, fan walls, videos and photosExperiential and on-site activationsDTR activations with artist likeness tied to in-store promotionsCategory exclusivity across all tour promotionsFollow on “after the tour” content with the artists / retrospectiveFor further information about Filtr LIVE brand partnerships, please contact Dana Yamaki, Dana.Yamaki@sonymusic.com or (305) 420-4900.
