Do you have your tickets for Future of Music Policy Summit 2011 on October 3-4, 2011 in Washington, DC? If you needed more convincing, we’ve got all of the fun extras about our Summit wrapped up in this email for your reading pleasure.
BREAKING NEWS: We’ve just confirmed a keynote address by Maria A. Pallante, Register of Copyrights and Director, U.S. Copyright Office, a keynote address by outgoing FCC Commissioner Michael J. Copps, and a conversation with Congressman Raul Grijalva (D-AZ) and members of Ozomatli, Ulises Bella and Raul Pacheco. Cheap Trick guitarist and songwriter Rick Nielsen and manager Dave Frey will reflect on the band’s storied career, as well as the recent spate of stage collapses and how to avoid future tragedies.
We have a growing list of parties, music, educational opportunities, and chances to network that will make it possible to completely fill your dance card from Sunday to Tuesday. We’ll even be raffling off a guitar, courtesy of Gibson Guitars and Washington Music Center, and a Sonos Play:3! Check out the fun below and plan accordingly!
