The LAMC is the largest Latin music conference in the United States. Its goal is to give young, bicultural Latinos the opportunity to define themselves. But the event won’t only be focusing on music. According to NALIP, the conference will also focus on all things food, film, books, art and poetry.

The conference will also feature panels like “Latin Music in Films, TV & Advertising,” “How to Hit the Road and Not Go Broke or Break Up,” “Finding Your Online Tribe and Engaging Fans” and “Finding Your Money in the Music Stream.” Head of Music Molly Neuman, Latin Grammy President Gabriel Abaroa, and KCRW DJ Raul Campos are only a few of the many panelists announced for the NYC conference.
