In the thick of this year’s Philly Music Fest, local musicians and creators will have an opportunity to network with local industry players who can share advice on how to take their art to the next level.

The festival’s annual Inside Hustle event, now a collaboration between PMF and WXPN that is hosted at REC Philly, takes place on Saturday, October 14th. In addition to a panel discussion among prominent musicians in the scene, the event includes an expo of tables and booths offering information on various facets of navigating the music scene in Philadelphia.

Representing radio is WXPN’s Mike Vasilikos and John Vettese, along with WMMR’s Sara Parker. To talk about artist management, Rennie Jaffe from Another Management Company (whose clients include Kurt Vile, Sheer Mag and more) will be on hand. For Promotions and marketing, Maggie Poulos of Mix Tape Media and Drexel professor Monika Julien are scheduled to attend. Helen Smith of World Cafe Live will talk about venues and booking, Hannah Westerman of Avenue West Design will talk about merchandising, Mitch Beer will represent studios and production. And more will be announced as the event approaches.

Inside Hustle takes place on Saturday, October 14th from noon to 3 p.m. The event is free to attend, but guests must RSVP at WXPN’s Eventbrite page.
