LAMC’s annual concert at Celebrate Brooklyn will be July 13 in Prospect Park with a lineup featuring Zoé, Chetes and The Pinker Tones. Additional LAMC events include the Music & Film Night @ Central Park SummerStage, Indie Showcase @ The Mercury Lounge, MTV Tr3s/Batanga showcase @ Bowery Ballroom, Acoustic Showcase @ SOB’s and Closing Night Party @ The Cooper Hewitt Museum.

Among this year’s panels, all of which are being held at The Roosevelt Hotel are: DIGI-LANDIA: The Growth & Landscape of Latin Digital Music Sales; Selecting the Music: How Programmers, Marketers and Music Supervisors Make Their Decisions; Changing of the Guard: Latin Alternative’s New Media Supporters; Class of ’97 Reunion: A Look Back at the Last Ten Years in Latin Alternative Music; and This Is Radio Clash: Are Satellite, Online, Public, Bilingual & Podcast Radio Formats the Future of Latin Alternative Broadcasting?

The four-day conference providing networking opportunities with the genre’s leading artists, label executives, journalists, marketers, managers, retailers and programmers, is the most extensive to be offered by a Latin music conference to date. — Jane Cohen and Bob Grossweiner
