It's ironic: go to a music conference, and everybody says the same thing. There are simply too many music conferences! And we should know: we go to alot of these things.

But how many conferences are there, actually? And how many should there be? Not counting the smaller networking events and workshops, we attempted to list every conference happening over the next 12 months, starting February 1st.

The result? We found 36 major events, and despite our diligence, we know we probably missed a few (and sure enough, check the comments). That boils down to nearly 3 a month, though in reality, these oftentimes overlap.

Here's the list. And, check our conferences page for newly-scheduled events and updates.
