As an artist, there is no limit to bettering your craft. Music conferences have become an excellent way for musicians to network, make valuable connections, and receive vital advice that can benefit them throughout their entire careers.
Below, you’ll find three music conferences that we believe every artist should check out at least once.
The ASCAP Experience is one of the most notable and essential music conferences on the planet. The event is held by the prestigious American Society of Composers, Authors, and Publishers. Therefore, it is safe to expect that the information dished out during this event is of the highest quality. Best of all, the conference features people from all walks of music, including publishers, execs, producers, and many others. This year, the event will be held virtually and 100% free for all attendees. All you need to do is RSVP.
South by Southwest, known as SXSW for short, is one of the top music conferences that provide musicians with a plethora of knowledge and resources to take home. Held in Austin, Texas, this conference is an opportunity for creators to mingle with professionals in similar fields while becoming acclimated with those in other creative walks that could benefit their careers. SXSW includes performances, speeches from keynote speakers, exhibits, and so much more. The next SXSW is taking place March 11th through March 20th for those who are interested.
A3C is a handcrafted conference for rap and hip-hop musicians from all over the world. Not only is it a conference, but A3C is also a full-blown music festival that has featured some of the biggest acts, including Rick Ross, 21 Savage, and more. This wildly successful event has been held in Atlanta, Georgia, for the past 16 years, and for its 17th anniversary, the conference is staying true to its roots. Attendees can enjoy panels and workshops surrounding topics such as tech, music, and culture.
As an artist, you will need to get out there and mingle with like-minded individuals. That is the sole purpose of conferences such as these. Read up on any of them and choose which one you are most interested in attending.
