This year's Future of Music Summit, taking place in Washington, DC, November 13th, a week after the election, will be free to attend or to view live online, including here on Hypebot. That's a good thing because they've reached capacity registration on attendance and the online summit is now your only chance to participate in this gathering focused on the “intersection of music, technology and policy." So join a diverse group of attendees from musicians to entrepreneurs to policymakers at the FMC “E-Summit" for discussions on the future of music.

The Future of Music Coalition is holding its 11th Future of Music Summit November 13th in Washington, DC in partnership with the New America Foundation. This year the summit is free in order to open up participation according to FMC Executive Director Lissa Rosenthal:

“We're making the summit a free, one-day event this year as part of an experiment to expand online participation and conversation...We know many people in the music community are still being careful with their spending, so our goal is for more people in the US and across the world to join the conversation online. We hope everyone who watches will come away feeling more empowered to take action and work with us to create a sustainable future for musicians."

This apparently worked so well that registration is at capacity and your only option for participaton is the live stream dubbed the “E-Summit." The schedule includes presentations from Artist Growth (music business app) and CASH Music (open source music business tools), a discussion of “Why Pussy Riot Matters" and “Making Music-Making Work for Working Musicians." Check back for a final list of speakers.

This year's summit should be especially energized taking place just a week after national elections. The Future of Music Coalition is encouraging web participants to organize viewing parties and take it to social media as well.

Event sponsors include Google, National Endowment for the Arts, Consumer Electronics Association, Sprint, Georgetown University, Gibson Guitar's Washington, DC Showroom and Fractured Atlas.
