During its 15-year run, the first New Music Seminar became one of the industry’s most influential music business gatherings, attracting more than 8,000 people from 35 countries, according to a news release. The seminar has since spawned almost every important music event worldwide, including South By Southwest, Winter Music Conference, In the City, and Canadian Music Week.

“I am excited to hear that the New Music Seminar is coming back. Now again the music business is in a state of revolution. It now will favor the creative core (the writer, the artist, the producer.) I’m sure that the NMS will be the forum that will help guide the way for artists and their business partners in this new direction.”

“The New Music Seminar led an insurgency that ushered in a new generation of music business leaders. The 21st century music business sorely needs that spirit again. The first NMS showed us how to hotwire the family Cadillac. The next NMS will show us how to choose the best hybrid on the lot.”
– Roland Swenson, Managing Director SXSW
