​​The ever-quickening consolidation of major music festivals by just a few major corporations is seen by many as a blight. They argue it leads to standardized and repetitive lineups and the damaging of independent music.

“We tried it,” Iovine said. “We’ll still do some stuff with the occasional artist. The labels don’t seem to like it and ultimately it’s their content.”

The Wall Street Journal reported in 2016 that labels had grown wary of exclusives, fearing that timed deals could have an adverse affect on overall streaming figures across all platforms.
