Anschutz In The City

AEG Live is partnering with the founders of the Manchester, England, music conference In The City, bringing a version of it to New York City June 13-14.

In The City of New York includes music industry panels at the W Hotel and performances by up-and-coming British artists (including the not-so-up-and-coming Happy Mondays) at the Nokia Theatre. Panelists include Ed Bicknell, Rob Hallett, Marc Geiger, Andy Gershon, Marty Diamond, Frank Riley and Mark Reiter.

The panels themselves have intriguing topics, such as why U.S. acts are sent overseas first to build their reputations ("Bring Me Your Poor and Huddled Masses – And We’ll Make Stars of Them and Ship Them Back").
