LAMC, the Latin Alternative Music Conference returns from May 4th to May 7th. The conference founded by Thomas Cookman over 20 years ago, returns in 2021, albeit in the same virtual format it employed in 2020 – driven of course by the pandemic.
Yet, also like 2020, it is free to register. So, for all you aspiring and established artists alike, whether it be performers, producers or songwriters. This is a golden opportunity to access and take advantage of some rather insightful and instructive panels, seminars, industry thought leaders – and as always great showcases.
This year just a few of the panels at LAMC 2021 include streaming strategies, touring in a post pandemic world and financial advice for musicians. Artists such as Mon La Ferte, C. Tangana and even Elvis Costello will be appearing.
To register for LAMC 2021 for free, visit latinalternative.com. See the full panel and concert schedule for LAMC 2021 below:
