Music Cities Think Tank

We believe that the leaders who are actively implementing programs and initiatives are the best resource to each other in solving complex problems, which is why we first formed the Music Cities Think Tank. 

The Music Cities Think Tank is a first-of-its-kind community convened to bring together music city leaders to share best practices. These experts learn from each other, share best practices, and gather insights on the issues facing cities with strong entertainment economies.  

The initial Music Cities Think Tank is comprised of industry professionals and government officials who are actively implementing programs and initiatives in their cities, and who seek to develop and disseminate new ideas that foster the development of vibrant music city ecosystems. Topics are set by the group and include: sound management, crowd management, industry development, music friendly policies, musician revenue, tourism, export and more. Participating cities include: 

  • Austin
  • Chicago
  • Denver
  • Ft. Collins
  • San Francisco
  • Seattle
  • Toronto
  • Memphis
  • Vancouver 
  • Columbus, Ohio
