This year’s Dewey Beach Music Conference & Festival will be held September 25-29, 2008 and will showcase 175 bands on 17 stages all within a 5 block radius. There is no cover charge or wristband fee for the public to get into the showcase venues at night! Thus, bands actually play in front of an audience.

The event includes two days of panels, clinics, tradeshow, mentoring sessions, a BMX stunt bike exhibit in the parking lot, and industry meet & greet parties, where bands and industry alike partake in lots of Free Food (Sushi & Jumbo Shrimp, Bud Light, Absolut SnowCones, Fiji Water) There is no other event in the country that is this musician friendly.

There are also daytime acoustic stages sponsored by Sponsored by 96 Rock, World Café Live, Airport Circle and VIP parties sponsored by Bud Light. The tradeshow is not only informative but fun. There a stage is set up and film crew are hired to film bands being interviewed by Matt Pinfield, free Absolut Snowcones, a Guitar Hero Booth where the highest scoring player after the weekend gets a free Dean Guitar, and a real Red Carpet with free Polaroid pictures are taken of the band to take home (and digital image emailed to them as well.) After all, we feel all our bands are worthy of walking the Red Carpet.

The event wraps up on Sunday with a free "Last Chance to Schmooze Brunch."

All bands that apply, whether chosen or not ALL get FREE Badges to attend the business sessions, parties, tradeshow, panels, clinics, mentoring/demo listening sessions. So don’t miss this year’s Dewey Beach Music Conference & Festival!
