Announcing the 2011 Future of Music Policy Summit!

Well, it’s official! The always-incredible Future of Music Policy Summit will return to Georgetown University in Washington, D.C. on October 3 and 4, 2011. As with our previous ten Summits (that many!), Summit ‘11 will once again bring together musicians, policymakers, managers, academics, technologists, industry heads and the media to talk about the ins-and-outs of today’s music ecosystem. 

This year, we’re boldly looking ahead. There’s no doubt that the music industry sometimes seems to be stuck on pause. But musicians aren’t waiting around for the future to come to them; they’re actively constructing it. To make the most of opportunities and avoid obstacles, musicians require the right tools and the right partners. The 2011 Future of Music Policy Summit will examine the issues that matter most to today musicians, songwriters and composers — from the hyper-local to the truly global.

We want YOU to be part of the conversation.

Our events staff are busy working on all the juicy programming details, but we do have a sense of what kinds of questions we want to address, like: what do artists require to make an impact in a content-rich, capital-challenged environment? How does policy impact musicians’ ability to thrive, not just today, but tomorrow? Is the industry finally ready to play nice with technology? Would bold changes to traditional music business models be the rising tide to lift all boats?

And no Summit would be complete without film screenings, cocktail parties, live music and networking opportunities — keep up with all the exciting elements and breaking news right here

Previous attendees know that our events are truly one-of-a-kind. For a taste of Summits past, check out our Vimeo page to see hot-topic conversations from 2010 and 2009.

Fast forward to the Future of Music with us on October 3- 4, and get in on Early Bird Registration for $199 until August 1.

As always, we’ll be offering a limited number of musician scholarships, so act fast!
