ANTI*POP Music Festival is a four night event, held November 7 - 10, 2007 in Orlando, FL. ANTI*POP showcases the best emerging talent the nation has to offer.

The festival will present edgy acts that are breaking into the mainstream thru new methods of marketing, forward thinking, and strong DIY principals. Showcasing bands will have the opportunity to perform alongside some of the leading bands in indie and underground music plus rub elbows with leading industry professionals and tastemakers.

Over 100 bands will take over downtown and midtown Orlando on 2 outdoor stages and 10 venues for the event, which will include a diverse lineup of national and regional acts. There are many slots available with at least ten slots are reserved for Sonicbids artists. All talent is booked by the area's leading promoters and all venues involved will have top-notch sound, production and presentation - a striking difference from many conferences!

Now in its third year, ANTI*POP alumni include Mute Math, The National, She Wants Revenge, Bob Mould, Atmosphere, Ambulance LTD, Lou Barlow, Hank Williams III, We Are Scientists, Trail of Dead, Sleepytime Gorilla Museum, John Vanderslice, Blood Brothers, Kasabian, Saul Williams, Pretty Girls Make Graves, Whole Wheat Bread, P.O.S., etc.

This year's lineup is still being booked but so far includes: Spoon, Aesop Rock, The Bravery, The Stills, David Bazan (Pedro the Lion), Jim Fairweather (Grandaddy), MC Chris, Busdriver, The Rosebuds, Black Moth Super Rainbow, IAMX (Chris Corner from Sneaker Pimps), Blockhead, Daedelus, Unknown Hinson and Dead Confederate, with many more to be announced soon!

The festival strives to be the perfect mix of underground excitement and mainstream appeal. All genres of music will be accepted and considered, as long as its good. The emerging sounds showcased will include rock, indie, punk, acoustic, underground hip-hop, electro, hardcore and more.

ANTI*POP is also an alternative to the outdated traditional music conference model. The panels will be more educational than your typical "how to get signed" and "demo reviews" panels that most conferences hype. Past panelists have included Robert Reynolds (manager/attorney, The Killers), Joe Escalante (Indie 103, Kung Fu Records, The Vandals), Robert English (Cornerstone/FADER), Christian Bernhardt (Kork Agency), Mark Mercado (manager, Paramore), Alex Saavedra (Eyeball Records), Jason Cook (Rhymesayers Entertainment) and Randall Jenkins (The Militia Group). 2007 panelists will be announced soon.
