This year, the annual Latin Alternative Music Conference officially kicks off June 9 offering an array of industry panels, workshops and showcases that will live online.
Amid the global COVID-19 pandemic and as the nation begins to reopen gradually, the LAMC’s five-day virtual conference includes timely panels like “The Future of Touring” with panelists Jordi Puig (OCESA), Phil Rodriguez (Move Concerts) and Sebastian De la Barra (Lotus Producciones). And, “Mental Health and the Creative Community” presented by MusiCares and the Latin Grammys featuring Carla Morrison, Kany García, Ana Tijoux and Guaynaa.
LAMC’s Talks with Billboard Latin will feature Leila Cobo’s can’t-miss fireside chats with Walter Kolm and ChocQuibTown’s Gloria “Goyo” Martínez.’
Artists like Mala Rodriguez, Thee Sinseers, Gaby Moreno and Lido Pimienta will perform on June 9 as part of peermusic’s showcase.
Francisca Valenzuela, Tatiana Hazel, Los Caligaris, among others are also set to perform during the LAMC. On closing night, LAMC will celebrate Pride month with performances by Kany García, Mabiland, Circo and Javiera Mena.
“Providing a forum to discuss the issues we face and the potential solutions that lie ahead is key as we look towards the future,” LAMC founder Tomas Cookman said in a previous statement. “Although the days ahead may be slightly different for a time, we should always keep in mind there is very much a future as music is a human and global emotion. We are lending our hand by making the conference free for all and having a team of professionals join us in making sure the LAMC experience is as informative and technologically seamless as can be.”
