June 2017 is New York Music Month (NYMM) – the first-ever citywide celebration of New York City’s diverse music ecosystem. The month is an initiative of the New York City Mayor’s Office of Media & Entertainment in partnership with NY is Music.
Music is central to the city’s economy, social fabric, and cultural identity. NYMM celebrates this with programming and resources for musicians and the music industry; co-branded concerts; advertising and social media campaigns; a website with a comprehensive calendar of free and ticketed music events; educational programs; and much more.
Organized to coincide with other major NYC area music events in June, the month’s calendar boasts both public and industry facing events, including the Sing for Hope Pianos, Governor’s Ball, the 48th Annual Songwriter’s Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony, the 100th anniversary of the National Music Publishers Association Annual Meeting, A2IM Indie Week, the Northside Festival, Live Nation’s Ford Amphitheater series at Coney Island, Central Park SummerStage and Celebrate Brooklyn opening weekends, and many more!
