(LOS ANGELES, CA) – Now in its fourth year, youbloomLA returns to Los Angeles on September 21-23, 2017 with a 2-day summit for independent musicians and 3-day international music festival. Andy Gould, legendary music veteran, will be the keynote speaker at the summit, and Malak, Blaxmyth, Mike Schiavo, Shae Altered, Leather Tramp will be headlining the music festival.

“We are thrilled to present keynote speaker Andy Gould in our fourth year expansion,” says Phil Harrington, youbloom founder. “Gould has managed artists like Rob Zombie, Pantera, Linkin Park, and youbloomLA is one of his only speaking engagements in 2017. Gould will be sharing his prolific music publishing experiences and his life in music.” Ted Cohen also joins as a keynote level speaker with a masterclass on “The Digital Music Revolution.” “It is critical for musicians and composers to learn how to monetize their work through digital,” says Harrington, “And this masterclass will offer tools to do so.”

Targeted to music executives, musicians, and students, the youbloomLA summit features an intense two days of music industry networking, panels, and masterclasses on September 22-23. Some standout sessions include “Live Production and Touring,” a “Sync or Swim” masterclass on placing music into tv and film, and a “Follow the Money” panel on how to track money from Spotify, YouTube, iTunes, etc. This year, the music summit will be held at the prestigious Los Angeles College of Music (LACM).
