Midwest Music Expo VI Saturday, April 15, 12P-5P CST
Now in its fifth year, MmX is a music industry conference with a deep focus on the midwest music scene and the communities that shape it. It draws equally on local leaders and international experts to deliver compelling panels, thoughtful discussions, inspiring keynotes, and new connections.
The 2023 Expo in Decatur also brings the first ever Get Signed Contest where artists will present 1 minute of their best song to a panel of industry professionals for critique. The prize package includes a 100-unit pressing of 12″ vinyl from Smashed Plastic, a MIDI Keyboard, and a signing deal with Millikin’s First Step Records. To learn more about and enter the contest, go here!
Rooted in a punk-rock, DIY, hard work, no-nonsense, get-things-done mentality, both events will spark creativity and connection throughout the Midwest region.
Tickets are $20, but you can get yours free with code MartinSentMe !
