MusExpo 2016 Brings New Global Talent to L.A.!

Written by Sarah Osman. Published: April 01 2016


Attention all fans of up-and-coming music: L.A. is about to host its own “United Nations of Music”! The 12th Annual MusExpo will be taking place April 17-20th at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel (where the Oscars were originally held!) and will feature leading executives from record labels, publishers, radio, and digital companies from major and independent labels.


A number of prominent speakers will take the stage at MusExpo, including Larry King, Jimmy Kimmel, Carson Daly, Global Director A&R of Warner Bros Music Group Aton Ben-Horin, co-founder of Shazam Chris Barton, CEO of Fathom Events John Rubey, and many more. In addition, Kevin Weatherly of KROQ will receive the International Person of the Year award.


The epic event won’t just feature speakers from the music industry -- a music event wouldn’t be complete without a bunch of musical acts! Artists from over a dozen countries will take the stage at SIR Studios Hollywood. A few of this year’s artists include White Eskimo, Fingertips, The Bongo Club, Sada Vidoo, The Response, Evol Walks, Bitter’s Kiss (pictured above), Broken Backs, Kinney, Reverse Order, and De La Torre among many others. Previous artists who have gone on to international success after performing at MusExpo include Katy Perry, Jessie J, Robyn, Churchill, Missy Higgins, and A Fine Frenzy, so you'll definitely want to keep your eyes (and ears) on this new crop of musicians!
