The 14th Annual Millennium Music Conference runs February 18-20 at the Radisson Penn Harris Hotel & Convention Center and over thirty showcase venues in and around Harrisburg. Nearly three hundred bands from as close as Camp Hill and as far as Australia are booked to showcase.
The Conference, now in its fourteenth year, features two afternoons of music business panels, clinics, workshops, mentoring sessions and one-of-a-kind industry trade show. Music industry professionals will attend and participate as speakers, mentors, exhibitors and talent scouts. Business sessions of the conference include: Legal Representation for the Up-and-Coming Artist, Creating A Creative Career, Publishing In The Digital Age, Artist Development, Online Music Marketing and Cyber PR. A Songwriting Workshop and panels on Urban Music, Artist Management and Studio Recording & Production are also featured during the daytime events. The afternoon conference events are open to the public and registration is required to attend.
But it’s not all business. The Conference celebrates new music at night with showcase performances by over 270 original bands and artists at local clubs, restaurants and coffee houses throughout the region over the weekend. Nearly every genre of popular music is featured and the local community joins in the celebration of emerging talent, independent artists as all showcase performances are open to the public. “We have performers coming from Japan, Australia, Canada, Denmark, the U.K. and 26 States “, said Conference Director John Harris. “All of the shows at night are open to the public and most are free of charge.”
Not unlike the rest of the business community, the Music Business is experiencing changes and shifts never before seen in its history. The Conference aims to expose all participating artists to the new paradigm in a concise and fun weekend package.
