Do You Agree With Forbes’ List of ’30 Under 30′ In Music?


forbes-30

About a month ago, Forbes released their list of ‘Highest Paid Musicians of 2014,’ and there were very few surprises. Today, Forbes came out with their, ‘30 Under 30‘ List of Individuals in Music, and there were more than a few surprises. The judging panel was made up of Taylor Hanson, of the band Hanson; Jody Gerson, Chief of Universal Music Publishing; and Troy Carter, Founder of Atom Factory. There were some rules that applied to the selection of these 30 artists including; no repeats from the previous years list AND at least ten members of the list must not be performers (that’s why there are producers and entrepreneurs on the list). As notable as these names are, the list seems to be missing more than a few notable names in the Music World. Do you agree with their choices? Check out the full list after the jump and decide for yourself.
