When & Where
The Big Apple Indie Music Series
The Big Apple Indie Music Series is a venue where we will give up to five independent music artists the opportunity to perform a 20 minute set live in front of music and entertainment industry executives at top venues around Manhattan. You also have the opportunity to network with other music artists as well as music, entertainment, tv and film industry executives we invite to each event. In addition, we offer a monthly music pitch session during the first hour of each event. This new feature of our events allows any music artist, whether or not they are scheduled to perform that night to have a one on one 5 minute pitch session directly with up to 10 or more A&R industry executives we invite to our events every month. No where else will you get an opportunity like this!
