“Our goal is to bring the industry’s brightest minds together to discuss the future of music and help artists build thriving careers. Whether you are a new artist, an established artist, hobbyist, music fan, or industry insider, all are welcome to participate in the music talks.”      

This year we are presenting panels that address self-care and mental health for musicians (Real Talk w/ Backline), the return of a popular music supervision panel listening and explaining their process for submitted songs, a discussion of the important connection between the visual arts and music, festival founders will explain their festival origins and look to the future of music festivals, a panel presented by Femme House on increasing inclusion and accessibility in electronic music, and an important discussion hosted by NIVA on issues related to their efforts to increase equity from the PROs (Performing Rights Organizations) in the U.S. We are also hosting a variety of instructional workshops from songwriting and production to hands on DJ workshops.

Music Talks will take place at Boise Centre East in Room 420A and workshops will be at LED.

Listening Sessions (NEEDS UPDATING)

Back by popular demand, this panel will give attendees a first hand look into the creative process of music supervision. In advance of the panel, Treefort Music Fest artists will submit songs to different projects that a crew of music supervisors from various disciplines have worked on. Then, the supervisors will review the songs in real time, giving feedback about why the tracks may or may not work. Attendees will leave this panel with a greater understanding of the music supervision process and factors that make a song a good candidate for licensing.

This panel will feature lots of audience interaction and Q&A, so attendees will be able to ask the questions they’ve always had about music supervision.
