Manitoba Music will be presenting a showcase in Los Angeles February 3-10, 2020. This is an opportunity for export-ready artists to perform for L.A.-based entertainment reps in a purposefully-organized setting.
Los Angeles is home to countless influential music industry professionals. This showcase will target music supervisors, publishers, program directors, labels, and more. Before the event, Manitoba Music will provide each participant and their team with personalized mentorship from an L.A.-based music mentor to identify industry targets and ensure the participant is well-prepared for building lasting business connections.
The showcase will take place in conjunction with a music industry networking event which participants or their artist managers would be expected to attend.
There will also be networking opportunities for Manitoba-based artists and music companies who don’t want to participant in a showcase. Contact us at your earliest convenience for more info
