Past Events

In its first three sold out installments - May 2015 in Brighton, UK; October 2016 in Washington, DC; and May 2016 in Brighton - 500 delegates from over 170 cities and 30 countries attended the world’s most extensive conference series exploring the value of music in urban planning, quality of life, city policy and development strategies.


Cities can’t simply expect music to be a part of their culture, they have to mindfully work to protect and develop it.
