In cooperation with AEG Live, Music In The City of New Yorkbusiness veterans Yvette Livesey and Anthony Wilson (Factory Records) are curating In The City of New York, a music seminar and festival set to take place June 13-14 of this year. Based in Manhattan, the gathering will be modeled after the Manchester UK industry event “In The City”. Headquartered at the W Hotel (Union Square) with 500 high level tastemakers expected to attend, In The City of New York will utilize Nokia Theatre, Times Square for evening performances by breaking and buzzing UK artists as well as several unsigned prospects imported from the Manchester sister conference this past fall.

To answer the Brit music invasion, In The City of New York will feature a “U.S. Revenge” segment which plans to tout a handful of emerging American bands that will showcase their wares on the Lower East Side club circuit.
