Registration Badge Types and Fees

KMC sponsored events and performances are open to the public with most being free of charge. So KMC Badge registration for participating musicians is our way of helping musicians and artists to get the most out of their time at KMC and make as many connections as they can.
For KMC 2019, participating musicians and artists will be required to register by selecting one of the following badges.
NOTE: Registration is per person, not per band/group and all members must register. However, members can register with different types of badges if they like. (Example: For a band of 4, one member gets a Gold badge, and another gets a Silver badge while the other two members get Basic badges)

Networking Event

Each year, as a type of "Meet & Greet," we have a networking session with artists meeting invited representatives of different music related companies and others who are looking for connections and talented artists to expand their market outreach. There will be a brief introduction period followed by an open networking period for about 45 min. to talk and exchange business cards. (read about business card etiquette)

Video Interview

Artists can have their performance recorded by KMC Staff and get to do an interview in the location of their choice, both of which will be given to them at the end of the conference. Interviews can be done in either English, Spanish or Japanese.
NOTE: If only one member of a band selects this option, then their band will be in the video, but they will be the only one interviewed.
