Yellow Phone Music Conference (YPMC) is a gathering of talented artists and music professionals scheduled for September 5th through 8th, 2013, 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, bringing professionals, artists and fans together to share ideas and discover new opportunities. At least 15 slots are reserved for Sonicbids artists (An overall total of 39 artists showcased at YPMC in 2012).

New this year - all artists who are selected to showcase will be eligible to receive free conference badges for all performers. Additional badges will be available for purchase at a significant discount.

Last year’s panelists included Kevin Lyman – Producer and Creator of the Vans Warped Tour; Patrick Stump – Singer and Songwriter with Fall Out Boy; Johnny K – Multi-Platinum, GRAMMY Nominated Producer; Sep V – Founder/Owner, Bright Antenna Records; Josh Adams – Video Director for the Foo Fighters, Martin Atkins – noted Musician, Author and Lecturer, and many more. YPMC 2013 promises another stellar lineup of music industry professionals with early confirmations including Jeff Castelaz – President of legendary Elektra Records (home to Cee Lo Green, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Ed Sheeran, Milo Greene, Kitten) and Chris Porter – Programming Director (head honcho of booking) for Bumbershoot - Seattle’s renowned and highly regarded 3 day Music & Arts Festival.

Yellow Phone is a more focused version of larger conferences which seem to have become less accessible to up-and-coming talent and new industry professionals. The priorities of those conferences have been redirected toward launching signed acts instead of showcasing undiscovered talent. Yellow Phone, on the other hand, is focused on the unsigned artists. With fewer artists and fewer venues, the quality of the talent presented is paramount.

Yellow Phone's goal is to bring together career oriented artists and positive, forward-thinking leaders in today’s music business, taking the best qualities of the larger industry conferences and downsizing them into a concentrated, quality experience with powerful, pertinent takeaways.
