Last month we posted about the Launch Music Conference and Festival which will be back for its eighth edition from April 21st to April 24th at the Lancaster County Convention Center in Lancaster, PA. Earlier this month, Launch announced it’s new partnership with The Entertainment Institute, who will be curating all educational panels and host break-out sessions through the weekend! The Entertainment Institute may sound familiar to some as it was previously featured on the Vans Warped Tour and was founded by Kevin Lyman (Creator of The Vans Warped Tour), Jen Kellogg (20 year concert industry veteran) and Matt Halpern (Founder of Bandhappy and drummer of band Periphery).
Launch Music Conference founder, Jeremy Weiss, discusses the importance of the partnership: "With LAUNCH and TEI both focusing on educating young musicians and would-be industry professionals, combining forces feels like destiny. We are thrilled to partner with TEI on presenting and curating all of the educational components of LAUNCH, expanding from a single-day program in 2015, as they are one of the most informative and effective educational platforms in the world. Partnering in the festival portion…, well that is most certainly a no-brainer! Kevin Lyman is one of the hardest working men I know, an innovator, and a friend. I’m so pleased, personally, to call him partner.“
