Amplify! Music. Conference. Festival
Various Venues in Las Vegas – Las Vegas, NV
August 5-8, 2008
Micah Carli – Hawthrone Heights
Amplified is a 4 day music conference and showcase in Las Vegas, Nevada that boasts daily conferences, nightly shows, and parties.
This year was as advertised. The daily conferences included panel discussions about touring, booking, music licensing to film and TV, online marketing sessions, and perspectives from the indie label A&R perspective. I thought all the A&R reps were fired–guess I was wrong. The panelists all came from the music industry and some were industry giants from Columbia Records, BMI, ASCAP, and managers from some of the biggest artists out right now.
Twiggs – 15 North @ Jillian’s
The showcases took place around town at Jillian’s, Canyon Club, and Hennessey’s just to name a few. The acts included Hawthorne Heights and Vanilla Ice among many other showcased bands. One could definitely stay busy all night listening to music and club hopping during the four days with the bright lights of Vegas.
