About Us
WELCOME BACK TO NEW YORK MUSIC MONTH

The Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment’s mission is to support and strengthen New York City’s creative economy and make it accessible to all. The Agency supports the key economic and creative sectors of film, TV, theater, music, nightlife, advertising, publishing, and digital content. In total, these sectors account for over 500,000 jobs, and an economic output of $150 billion. The agency also oversees NYC Office of Nightlife and NYC Media, the largest municipal broadcasting entity in the country including five TV Stations and a radio station with a reach of 18 million households and a 50-mile radius.

 

Now, as the city reopens, NYMM is back with a mix of in-person and virtual events. Join us for concerts in the parks, access free rehearsal space, join the conversation on New York’s reopening at the annual conference, and hone your skills with workshops and master classes led by industry experts. Music is central to the city’s economy, social fabric, and cultural identity. Now more than ever we need to recognize and celebrate the role music plays in NYC. NYMM celebrates this with free programming and resources for musicians, industry professionals, students, and fans.  Organized to coincide with other major NYC music events in June, the month’s calendar boasts both public and industry facing events, including Governor’s Ball, the Annual Songwriters Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony, the National Music Publishers Association Annual Meeting, A2IM Indie Week, Live Nation’s Ford Amphitheater series at Coney Island, SummerStage and BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! Festival opening weekends, and many more!
