Each year LAUNCH is pleased to host a number of professionals from all aspects of the music industry to speak on a variety of topics relating to the growing complexities of the business.

Subjects covered in panels in the past include: how to get a manager/booking agent/label and when is the right time to get them, why and when to tour, how to get your band a gig, what you can do to increase your social network presence, and more. LAUNCH also annually presents the Can You Handle the Truth panel, in which music is submitted by attending bands to be judged by panelists and professionals in front of a live audience, much like our own version of American Idol. Think you have what it takes to impress industry leaders? Sign up now.
