File Under: Music Business News, Making Money With Music, Networking and Building Your Team

If you're in the Midwest, join us next Friday, September 30 through Sunday, October 2 at CDBaby's DIY Musician Conference in Chicago. It's being held at the Congress Plaza Hotel -- just across from Millennium Park and we'll be speaking on a panel Saturday on "Why Music Publishing Is More Important Than Ever".

This is the DIY Musician Conference's second year. In 2015, the conference was packed with great guest speakers such as Tom Jackson, Tony Van Veen, Martin Atkins, Kevin Breuner, and many more. As of now, tickets are on still available for sale ($129), but there's a good chance they will sell out. So for information about purchasing tickets check out the DIY Musician Conference site.

Guest speakers this year include: Bob Boilen, Jack Conte, Gaelynn Lea, Bob Baker, Martin Atkins, Tom Jackson, and many, many more. Download the agenda PDF for more details about the sessions and panels.
