It’s that time of year again when musicians, attorneys, students and community members meet up to discuss and celebrate the Athens music scene.
Founded in Spring 2010, Protect Athens Music has become an annual tradition in the Athens, Georgia music community. The Protect Athens Music Conference, organized by the Sports and Entertainment Law Society at the University of Georgia School of Law in conjunction with the Terry College of Business Music Business Certificate Program, provides a forum where professional musicians and music industry veterans may speak candidly with local musicians about the most important topics in the ever-changing music industry.
This year’s event will be the 7th year of the conference, and held on March 28th at the 40 Watt Club – the legendary rock venue that has been the home base for beloved local and touring bands for over 35 years. The conference includes a feature panel focusing on copyright law in music, a Nuci’s Space informational presentation and a live performance from Falco Brown. It’s sure to be a fun event for those interested in all aspects of the music industry.
