ECMC 2019 is 4 days of amazing music from around the world, intimate conversations with industry pros, album releases, street parties, club shows, and more! All throughout Downtown Norfolk. Check out top industry speakers like Matt Starr, unique networking opportunities, special events, and over 75 live music performances!
ECMC 2019 is the ultimate music experience for musicians, fans, and anyone interested in the modern music business. For 2019 we'll feature over 70 live performances throughout Downtown Norfolk at nearly a dozen separate locations. Major venues include Granby Theatre, The Brick Anchor, Bearded Bird Brewing and many more!
ECMC is one of the largest music conferences in the US and is dedicated to helping musicians, industry professionals, and those looking to enter the industry make connections and understand how this rapidly changing industry works right now.
During the day ECMC is almost all business. We have seminars on specific industry topics, one-to-one mentoring sessions with speakers and industry pros, technical workshops, tons of networking opportunities, and top shelf keynote speakers.
The evenings kick off with outdoor events, listening and album release parties, and other chill events ahead of the night's showcases. As night falls the artists take the stages in force and bring music of all styles from all over the world to downtown Norfolk. With a conference or showcase pass you can come and go as you want to every show, party, and event, at every venue, all weekend long! There's no limit to the shows you can see or events you can check out. With most events being within easy walking distance the only challenge is going to be deciding which shows to go see!
For 2018 ECMC drew 7300 attendees from 6 countries and 20 states. 2019 is going to be even bigger and better! Several fan-favorite acts are returning and announcements of national acts added for this year, as well as announcement of keynote speakers, are coming soon!
Conference passes (all the seminars, keynotes, workshops, and networking) are limited to just 1000 attendees and are expected to sell out well in advance. Show passes (concerts, club shows, street parties, listening parties, album release parties, and other music events) are expected to sell out as well. Don't wait!
