The Mayor's Office of Media and Entertainment (MOME) announced that this year, New York Music Month will become New York Music Month Extended Play, a six-month mega-edition of this beloved program, launching January 11, 2021 and wrapping June 30, 2021.
For the past four years, June has been New York Music Month, the official New York City celebration of the most diverse music scene in the world, with events across five boroughs. This year, however, the city's music scene has been dealing with the pandemic, which has brought almost all live performance to a standstill. In response, MOME has supersized Music Month to include an anticipated 40-plus events over the course of six months, all safe, virtual and free. As always, New York Music Month Extended Play (NYMMEP) will have something for artists, industry and fans, but with an added urgency in order to support our vital music scene at a time of unprecedented concern. Many of the panels can be viewed below.
