The East Coast Music Conference brings together musicians, fans, and industry professionals to form a community founded on the love of music. During the days of ECMC, music industry experts share their knowledge with musicians working to advance their careers and others interested in the music business. Seminars, panels, and other conference events require a Platinum Pass to attend.

Due to conditions caused by COVID-19 and the health risks associated with the pandemic we are postponing all live events to 2021.

Here’s What’s Changing

  • Live performances and other in-person festival events will not take place in 2020. All artists accepted for 2020 will have the option of returning in 2021 without having to re-apply.
  • Speakers, mentorships, parties, and all other in-person conference events are postponed to 2021. We will attempt to reschedule as many of those events as possible in 2021 and replace those that cannot be rescheduled with comparable events.
  • The ECMC Riff Off Powered by PRS Guitars will be rescheduled to 2021.
  • The International Independent Music Video Awards (IIMVA) WILL CONTINUE as planned as a virtual event rather than an in-person presentation. The IIMVA Awards Ceremony will be presented as planned on August 8, 2020 virtually.
  • The IIMVAs are adding a category for best video made during the COVID lockdowns.

THANK YOU for all your support the last few years!!

We appreciate your understanding, help, and creativity! We’ll get back together soon and it will be EPIC.
