This year, more than 300 artists will perform at 30 venues around the city with audiences looking to catch the next Godsmack, Fuel or Halestorm—all of whom have performed at Millennium. Admission to many shows is free and several are all-ages.
Since 1997, Millennium has also provided networking and educational opportunities for independent musicians and industry professionals. Previous keynote speakers have included MTV’s Matt Pinfield, Megadeth’s David Ellefson and Pat DiNizio of The Smithereens.
This year, the conference welcomes producer and GRAMMY-nominated engineer David Ivory. Ivory currently serves as both a national trustee and co-chair of the GRAMMY National Membership Committee. He has won gold and platinum RIAA awards for his work with The Roots, Erykah Badu and Patti LaBelle. Ivory is also credited with discovering and producing the GRAMMY-winning rock band Halestorm.
A trade show accompanies two afternoons (Friday and Saturday) of music industry panels and workshops, one-on-one mentoring and demo listening opportunities. The Best Western Premier—The Central Hotel & Conference Center hosts both the trade show and afternoon sessions.
