The publication detailed Protect Live Music and the rebranding in a statement posted to the Consequence website. Read an excerpt below:
Consequence of Sound was founded in 2007 with a focus on live music. Much has changed in the decade and a half since, but Consequence’s passion for live music remains as strong as ever. We couldn’t imagine a better way to celebrate the next stage of our existence than by gathering together some of our favorite artists from the last 15 years for a weekend of live music.
