A3C & Planet Ill Present: “I Rock A Mic But Don’t Rap” Print/Digital Media Panel
October 11th | 6:00-7:30 | Highland Ballroom
In this digital era, there are endless opportunities to make your music heard but how do you get music in the hands (or inboxes) of the media? Get a pulse on the Hip Hop journalism industry. Planet Ill as part of the A3C Festival present a panel that will illustrate the ins and outs of getting your story told, music played or event pushed by the media.
What part does PR play in all of this? Should you be handling these tasks yourself or delegating them to a professional with contacts and the experience to get your product out there? How would you even go about finding the contact people and once you find them, how do you get noticed among thousands of daily emails? This panel will get you hip on all of that and more.
Panelists: The Company Man (moderator), Dallas Penn, Lowkey (YouHeardThatNew), DJ Z (DJBooth.net), Manny Faces (Birthplace Magazine), Tai Saint Louis, David Mays (Hip Hop Weekly), Julia Beverly (O-Zone), Maurice Garland.
As part of this panel, those who attend and sign up with Planet Ill will be guaranteed to get their music played on the site and well as get a free branding consultation from Renaissance ReBrand.
