The Latin Alternative Music Conference (LAMC), the biggest event in the world for cutting-edge Latin music and culture, will once again return to New York City this summer from July 11th – 14th.  The 13th Annual LAMC is a “must play” event for developing and established acts alike. Registration is currently discounted at only $99 until May 31st.

Today, the LAMC is announcing the lineups for artist showcases at the Mercury Lounge on Wednesday July 11th, which includes performances from La Santa Cecilia, Monica Lionheart, Martin Buscaglia, ArtOfficial, Alex Anwandter, Gepe and Xenia Rubinos, and the Gramercy Theater on Thursday July 12th, featuring La Vida Boheme, Carla Morrison, Psycho Realm, Adrianigual, Jot Dog and Cero39.

These shows are in addition to the annual set of Central Park SummerStage free concerts, with acts ranging from breakout young stars like 3Ball MTY, Ximena Sariñana and DJ Raff to established icons like Kinkty, Mala Rodríguez and Los Auténticos Decadentes.  Among the events still to be announced include Celebrate Brooklyn at Prospect Park and Passport Fridays at Queens Museum.

SiriusXM via “En Vivo”  is partnering with the LAMC for a weekly radio program, hosted by LAMC founder Tomas Cookman. From rock and hip-hop to boogaloo, the “LAMC Mixtape” airs every Saturday & Sunday from 5-7pm EST / 2-5pm PST on SiriusXM Channel 147.  Visit http://latinalternative.com/mixtape/ for playlists of past episodes and follow the LAMC Mixtape on Facebook and Twitter.

With past conferences averaging more than 1,250 music industry attendees and 25,000 concert fans each year, the 13th LAMC promises to be yet another exciting year.  This four day conference providing networking opportunities with the genre’s leading artists, music entrepreneurs, journalists, marketers, managers and programmers is the most extensive to be offered by a Latin music conference to date.
