Gen Y And Music - Emily Copeland

  1. 1. GEN Y & MUSIC
  2. 2. Gen Y - The Stereotype… JWT Busting Gen Y Myths http://www.stwgroup.com.au/whats-interesting/GetWhatsInterestingPost.aspx?id=270 (image via Wordl.net)
  3. 3. WHO IS GEN Y? According to Oztam, they were born 1976 - 1990 Gen Y includes anyone who this year is turning anywhere from 19 to 33. From Hermione to June Carter-Cash. (FYI Emma Bunton, Adrian Grenier, Cat Deeley, Brett Lee, Colin Farrell, Alicia Silverstone and Jennifer Capriati are technically Gen Y. Even Fred Savage fits in here!)
  4. 4. GEN Y CONNECT VIA MUSIC BRITISH COUNCIL YOUTH TRIBES (2004): Townies, Goths, Nu-mettalers, Soulstrels, Indie Kids, Pop Princesses, Clubbers, Grungers, Skaters. Music helps to identify each tribe. Music defines who they hang out with, what they wear, where they go out, the media they consume and the alcohol they drink.
  5. 5. GEN Y DOMINATE MUSIC Every Top 5 artist in the current ARIA singles charts was born between 1979 – 1990.
  6. 6. GENERATION Y PAY They look for 4 things when spending money: PRICE (cheap) QUALITY (high) SERVICE (quick) and an EXPERIENCE
  7. 7. INTRODUCING HYPE (Williams) Hype Williams is one of the most influential music video directors of the last 15 years. He pioneered fish-eye lenses and split screens in music videos, and has worked with such high profile musicians as Beyonce, TLC, Missy Elliott, Kanye, Kelis, Aaliyah and Jay-Z. When Hype Williams releases a video, people pay attention.
