The Opportunity

From September 4th through 7th, 2014, at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in downtown Milwaukee, WI, YPMC will present engaging panel discussions and mentor sessions with experienced, respected leaders in the music business.

To give you an idea of the level of music professionals attending this event, globally acclaimed record producer Butch Vig (Nirvana, Smashing Pumpkins, Green Day and Foo Fighters to name a few) and drummer for the alt-rock band Garbage, will be the opening keynote speaker YPMC 2014. Butch's keynote will be presented interview-style with the interview being conducted by Jeff Castelaz, President of Elektra Records. YPMC is the first national and international music conference to feature Vig as a speaker, a validation that the event's straightforward approach is receiving industry attention.
