Join the conversation about the future of music in DC!
The Future of Music Coalition (FMC) celebrates a decade of fighting for musicians this October with their empowering three day flagship conference, at Georgetown University from October 3-5. The 10th Anniversary Future of Music Policy Summit unites the brightest minds in the music industry to discuss the key issues affecting the entire music ecosystem.
This is a can’t-miss event for musicians, songwriters, composers, students, and music industry professionals. The conference will feature presentations and panel discussions from T Bone Burnett (renowned musician, composer and producer), Chuck D (Public Enemy), Damian Kulash (OK Go), Craig Finn (The Hold Steady), Eric Garland (founder, Big Champagne Media Measurement), musician Erin McKeown, independent label legend Tom Silverman of Tommy Boy Records, plus representatives from YouTube Music, Facebook, Google, Pandora, and TopSpin to name a few!
There is a special musician and student scholarships available starting from $20 upward. Hurry now as tickets are going fast.
A must is the “Musicians Education Day” on Sunday October 3 which will feature a host of exciting panel discussions empowering musicians at every stage of their career. The day will kick off with a master class by music PR supremo Ariel Hyatt, followed by "To-Do's And You: The New Artist Check List" which will focus on 12 things all new artists should do at the beginning of their career. There will also be a panel discussion on “The New Hustle: Direct to Fan Case Studies” and "Indie Labels in 2010."
There will also be various informal “supersessions” throughout the conference which will encourage interactive discussions on topics including Music Access on Campus, Live Music and Social Networks, Artists Activism, and Music in the Clouds. Plus a host of networking opportunities with label representatives, managers, media, and promoters, including the traditional FMC Pho Welcome Dinner on Sunday October 3.
