Mondo.NYC and the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) have announced the 2021 agenda for their sixth year at the music and tech conference.
This year’s RIAA track will showcase a keynote conversation between ACM head Damon Whiteside, Jackie Jones of the RIAA, and Jimmie Allen, the ACM’s reigning New Male Artist of the Year. The multi-Platinum recording artist will sit down with Whiteside and Jones to talk about being the first Black solo performer to win the ACM’s New Male Artist of the Year award, how he broke into the industry, how things have changed, and how important diversity is to the music community. This panel will take place on Oct. 13 from 5:00 to 6:00 p.m. eastern time.
The 2021 event will also feature Mondo conference favorite “Everything You Need to Know About Music Policy in One Hour,” and a conversation with chart-topper JoJo about wellness and mental health with mental health expert, Miles Adcox. These panels join the previously announced conversation between Ole Obermann, VP/Head of Music, TikTok, and Mitch Glazier, Chairman & CEO of the RIAA.
Bobby Haber, Mondo.NYC’s co-founder says, “Once again, the RIAA has put together an extraordinary group of speakers and artists to give our attendees both a broad overview as well as deep insights into what key decision-makers are doing to reinvigorate our industry, respect artists, and build back better and stronger after the devastating past 18 months. The RIAA-hosted artist presence at Mondo gives an invaluable perspective as to why we all do what we do.”
The full Mondo.NYC 2021 music festival and conference runs Oct. 12-15 in venues in New York City and online worldwide. All panels are open to Mondo registrants and take place virtually live on Wednesday, Oct. 13 starting at 2:00 p.m. CT. Four-day passes to all live and virtual events are now available.
All in-person attendees will need to present evidence of COVID vaccination, in addition to compliance with all current NYC, New York State and federal city health guidelines.
