Showcase Opportunity: Manitoba Music in Nashville

Posted on

SUBMISSION DEADLINE: 4pm, Monday, July 15, 2013

We are now accepting submissions from artists and artist representatives interested in participating in a Manitoba Music showcase at the Americana Music Conference and/or in an industry networking event in Nashville, TN, September 16-22, 2013. These are opportunities to perform for and network with influential American and international music industry professionals.

The Americana Music Conference hosts Nashville's most comprehensive music industry forum and is attended by artists, managers, publishers, radio stations, agents, promoters and more.
