Future Of Music Coalition To Hold Annual Summit In Washington, D.C. On October 28-29, 2013
Future of Music Coalition (FMC) (http://futureofmusic.org), a national education, research, and advocacy nonprofit for musicians, is thrilled to announce the Future of Music Summit, which takes place at Georgetown University in Washington, DC on October 28-29, 2013.
2013 marks the 12th Future of Music Summit, which will again be held at Georgetown University (http://www.georgetown.edu) in Washington, D.C. for academics, entrepreneurs, fans, lawyers, managers, marketers, musicians, policy makers, students, and technologists.
"There is so much energy around music right now, we're excited to reflect that vitality at Summit 2013," states FMC's Interim Executive Director, Casey Rae. "Musicians everywhere are making their voices heard on the issues that impact them and Future of Music Summit 2013 is the perfect place for those voices to mingle with others who share a vision for a healthier music ecosystem. This year, we'll be looking at proposed changes to US Copyright law, artist compensation and access to audiences, and fundamental issues concerning creators at the local level, like health care and infrastructure. Our event always puts musicians front-and-center, and Summit '13 amplifies that commitment. We'll be getting specific about what is and isn't working for the music community and also hearing from policymakers, academics, legal experts, industry leaders, and more about shared challenges and opportunities. Summit '13 goes to 11."

As always, Summit 2013 unofficially kicks off on the evening of Sunday, October 27, with a Pho dinner in the DC metro area, where conference attendees are welcome to make connections over a relaxed, informal meal.
In order to ensure musicians are not left out conversations that affect their livelihoods, Future of Music Coalition offers artist scholarships for the Summit so they can attend, learn, and network and share perspectives. The scholarship allows musicians to attend the Future of Music Summit on a sliding scale basis, starting at $25. The scholarship does not cover travel or lodging. Musicians can apply for scholarships at http://futureofmusic.org/events/future-music-summit-2013.
