Take your music to the next level this May 18th – 20th in Nashville.

For 2023, we’ve reimagined the DIY Musician Conference as an intimate VIP Experience in conjunction with the MusicBiz Conference in Nashville. This will give you unprecedented access to industry heavyweights and tastemakers at an affordable price!

You can expect the same sense of indie community and innovative spirit as our DIY Musician Conference, but in a more intimate setting. That means there’ll be a greater focus on small-group mentorship and direct access to industry professionals.

At the DIY Musician VIP Experience you get:

  • Access to Thursday sessions at MusicBiz ($1800 value)
  • All-day Friday: DIY Musician educational sessions, panels, mentoring, and networking!
  • Small-group fireside chat sessions with industry pros
  • A chance to showcase in front of industry movers-and-shakers
  • Plenty of opportunities to connect with other artists, speakers, and the CD Baby team
  • Bonus day 3! For just $30, you get access to Tom Jackson’s exclusive “solo artist” live makeover on Saturday (with a chance to workshop your stagecraft).

But attendance is limited to 300 artists, so get your backstage pass today!
