2015 DIY Musician Conference sold out!We’re just two weeks away from the inaugural DIY Musician Conference and we’re happy to announce that the event is completely sold out!

[IMPORTANT: the discounted room rate at the Congress Plaza Hotel is also no longer available.]

Over 1,000 artists from 15 countries and 44 different states will be joining us in Chicago for a very special weekend of sessions and panels geared specifically towards independent musicians who want to take their careers to the next level.

If you’ll be in attendance, we can’t wait to see you there!

If you missed out on getting tickets, you can follow the conference events on Twitter at @cdbaby or by using the hashtag #DIYMusician on Twitter and Instagram.

We’ll also be videoing many of the workshops and plan to make those videos available after the conference concludes.

Attendee locations
Conference attendees are traveling to Chicago from all over the world.

Newly added: free panel on DIY booking, open to all!

For folks who’ll be in the Chicago area during the weekend, we’ve also added a pre-conference event that anyone can attend for free (not just conference attendees).

It’s a panel discussion called DIY Booking and Concert Promotions, hosted by the City of Chicago, Department of Cultural Affairs and Events (DCASE) and the Chicago Music Commission.

The panel will take place between noon and 2pm on Friday, October 23rd at the Chicago Cultural Center on 78 E Washington St. Chicago IL, 60602. Note: this is at a different location from the rest of the conference events. No badges required!
