Opportunity Crush: Boston Music Conference Showcase

July 28, 2010

The annual Boston Music Conference has been announced for September 25 & 26, and they’ve set up a competition to fill spots on their band showcase. We know that the readers of Boston Band Crush are some of the most talented people out there, so we wholeheartedly encourage bands to apply and participate.

Here’s a quick rundown: One application per artist can be submitted through Sonicbids, who will be hosting a dozen competitions at Mojitos Nightclub downtown (each one is genre specific, so check out the schedule here). Bands from each night will be chosen for the main showcase, where they will be performing in front of industry executives and A&R representatives, be given immediate feedback by a panel of judges and receive a prize package (details to be announced shortly, but last year prizes were valued at over $10,000). What’re they looking for? According to the criteria page: originality, ability to draw their fans to the show, professionalism and stage presence among other things – that sounds like your band to us, so get going

Get all the details from the Sonicbids page here, and from the official BMC page here.

Not in a band? The conference also offers panels, networking and workshops for anyone interested in a career in music entertainment; definitely worth it for the great photographers, bloggers and entrepreneurs in our community. Register through the BMC Eventbrite page early and save some money.
