Event Details

Boston + New England has an impressive number of companies creating tools and technologies to help promote and fund music projects. 


We also have a vibrant and diverse music community. 

It's time to better connect the two for the benefit of both. 

In May 2010, we held the first Music 2.0 event. With 200+ attendees, it was a terrific evening and something of a first for pulling together many of the music, tech, and event companies from Greater Boston. 

For 2011, we are going to have fewer companies presenting (so that each can have more time), quick updates from some companies that presented last year, and more time to meet friends new and old (read: networking!) and a chance for companies that are hiring to press the flesh with folks who are job hunting. 

Music 2.0: Tools + Tech for Musicians, Marketers, + Managers is Wednesday, April 20th at the Microsoft New England Research & Development Center at 1 Memorial Drive, Cambridge, MA 02142 ( http://microsoftcambridge.com) from 6-9 PM. 

This year's event is again free, thanks to generous support and help from:
