Get Ready For The New Music Seminar
May 30, 2013 at 7:05 AM (PT)
The NEW MUSIC SEMINAR is set to happen in NEW YORK, JUNE 9-11.
On its website, the Seminar describes, "In 1980, more than 200 people gathered at a NEW YORK CITY rehearsal studio to discuss and debate challenges in the music business. The event grew in subsequent years, expanding its focus to cover growth of the music industries, and to include a music showcase/festival, initially called, 'New Music Nights.' These were held in various NEW YORK CITY area clubs and venues, and were eventually opened to the public.
"In its 16-year run, the first series of seminars annually attracted more than 8,000 participants from 35 countries, and was considered one of the most influential Music Business Conferences in the World.
"In 2009 NMS was revived because the music business was in crisis after a decade of dropping album sales. Label executives, agents, promoters and artists needed find ways to break away from the traditional album-based business model.
"That year, The NEW MUSIC SEMINAR was re-launched by TOM SILVERMAN and DAVE LORY as a touring series in NEW YORK CITY and CHICAGO. In 2012, is convened in LOS ANGELES and NEW YORK CITY, 2011 in LOS ANGELES, and 2012 in NEW YORK, where it currently resides as an annual event."
