Five reasons why you should attend the DIY Musician Conference:

This is the only full-scale music conference focused specifically on your needs as an independent artist. You’ll spend three days with music industry professionals, influencers, and the DIY Musician community — so join us in Austin where you can:

1. Get expert feedback on your songs

Looking for input about your music? Take advantage of our one-on-one mentoring, “song pitch” sessions, workshops on songwriting, classes about composing for TV and film, arranging for a band, and more.

2. Learn about the tools and strategies that will help your music reach a larger audience

There are many ways to get noticed and earn revenue these days. You’ll dive deep into methods that will help you:

  • Book more and better gigs
  • Target new fans online
  • Establish a career without playing live
  • Build an email list that makes you money
  • Get the most from your videos
  • Dial in your artist “brand”

3. Perform your music live at a sweet Austin venue

Showcase your music at Cheer Up Charlies where we’ll have three nights of music on two separate stages!

Early-bird ticket holders get priority access to apply for showcases, so get your tickets today.

4. Meet reps from major music brands, get to know fellow musicians, and hang out with the CD Baby staff

Collaborate with other musicians, meet with influencers in the industry, and make new friends in the indie music world — including us at CD Baby! This network will last you long after the conference is over.

5. Carve out the time and space to take your music career seriously

This is an action-packed weekend — in an inspirational setting — where you can feel supported, get focused, and immerse yourself in your creative and marketing processes. Whether you’re looking for knowledge, connections, or opportunities, you’ll leave this conference with everything you need to take the next steps in your music-making.

Early-bird tickets are only available through March 15th. For the price of a pair of pants you can take your music to the next level. We hope to see you there!
