YouTube will host a night of live performances during the Music Biz 2015 seminar on Wednesday, May 13, beginning at 9 p.m. CT at The Wildhorse Saloon in downtown Nashville.

The event will feature acts from all three major labels including Casey James (Sony Music Entertainment), Jana Kramer (Warner Music Group), and Mike Posner (Universal Music Group). Additionally Tony Joe White will perform from Redeye.

“Live music has always been such an important part of Music Biz, with a wide range of artists and genres represented in years past,” said James Donio, President of Music Biz. “Bringing the convention to Music City USA makes live performances an even more important component of the event. The Wildhorse show will be a fun and entertaining experience for everyone. We’re especially grateful to YouTube and our member labels for coming together to produce what is certain to be a wonderful night of collaboration and camaraderie.”

“Nashville is one of the most important cities in the world when it comes to the creation and performance of music,” said Vivien Lewit, Head of Artist and Label Relations, YouTube. “Fans today experience music in so many ways online, but a live show always promises to deliver a special connection between the artist and fans. That’s why we can’t wait to host ‘Live at the Wildhorse’ to celebrate incredible artists with our friends in Nashville’s music community.”

Music Biz 2015 will be held in Nashville for the first time from May 12-14. Registration is available online.
