Back Robert Levine
speakers 2013

Robert Levine

Robert Levine is the author of Free Ride: How Digital Parasites Are Destroying the Culture Business and How the Culture Business Can Fight Back, which the New York Times Book Review called “a book that should change the debate about the future of culture.” The book, his first, was also praised by Businessweek, Fortune, the Financial Times, and other publications. In 2013, Free Ride was translated into Spanish—as Parásitos—and received positive reviews in Spain. Levine has been the executive editor of Billboard and a features editor at Wired and New York, and he has contributed articles to Vanity Fair, Rolling Stone, and the New York Times. He lives in Berlin.
