NEW YORK CITY (CelebrityAccess) — Organizers for Mondo.NYC, the annual trade conference and showcase music festival, announced the lineup for the 2022 event.
Artists will perform virtually on Mondo’s daily live stream via YouTube and at multiple independent concert venues around New York City, including Arlene’s Grocery, Bar Freda, Bowery Electric, Brooklyn Bowl, Drom, and The Sultan Room.
Artists announced for 2022 include Janelle Sy’mone, District 97, JUJU, Al Jacobi, Her Skin, Alexndra Alden, Apryll Aileen, EJ Worland, The Brink Of, We The Commas, The Day Dreamers, Waasil, Becca Stevens & The Secret Trio, Bloom Twins, Papercutz, Phony PPL, Snacktime, Thomas Piper, Miu Haiti, Mike Borgia, Aria &, Mumu, The Cordial Sins, Emmanuel Ohemeng III & Perpetual Motion, Ghostlight, Tokyo, Urbansky, Satch, Kyotolp, and Planet Opal, among others.
The showcase concerts will include multiple genres and feature artists from around the world, including Denmark, Italy, Malta, Canada, the UK, Portugal, Finland, Ireland, Istanbul, India, and Tokyo, along with the U.S. and will be free to conference attendees.
“I’m really proud Mondo is able to host multiple nightly live showcases this year, all at independent venues. We missed the energy and shared appreciation for music and one another through the challenges Covid presented. Though NYC is generally open for nightlife, there are still travel challenges for out-of-town artists, so for now and into the future, Mondo will continue to host both live and streamed showcases. We invite anyone to come to a live show or enjoy one at home on their couch because either way, they’ll be supporting the independent music ecosystem,” said Mondo.NYC showcase director Jennifer Sellers-Dimitrov.
The conference takes place from October 11-14 at the Williamsburg Hotel.
