We are beyond thrilled to present two legends of the concert/festival industry appearing on the same stage for the very first time (and only time). Check out Peter Shapiro and Jay Sweet swapping stories from their careers promoting major events such as The Grateful Dead reunion tour – Fare Thee Well and the Lockn’ Festival (Peter) and Newport Folk and Newport Jazz (Jay). 
These guys have become two of the industry’s most successful concert promoters by taking big chances, breaking rules and following their instincts. They are also two of the most well respected executives in the entire music industry. You will be blown away to hear the behind the scenes stories, the funny anecdotes, and even some of the mistakes they’ve made along the way. You will be entertained, informed and also network with many of the music industry’s most successful and connected execs.
It all goes down on Tuesday, October 22 at the National Geographic Encounter Ocean Odyssey in Times Square. As a bonus, WHO KNEW attendees will be given free passes to visit the Ocean Odyssey at any future date. Get your tickets HERE.

 


An extension of MusicRowSearch, WHO KNEW Nashville is a bi-monthly event designed to provide unique perspectives from many of the music industry’s most accomplished executives and brightest minds. Think “Shark Tank” + TED Talks + speed dating. It’s the next generation of Meet Up. The event serves as a fertile hunting ground for talent, trends and who’s making it happen. Everyone who attends gets a birds’ eye view of who’s new and who’s next.

“WHO KNEW Nashville is an event series inspired by my mission to connect people. Nashville is one and half degrees of separation. I kept meeting and seeing the incredible wealth of knowledge, experience and talent and thought ‘How do I get all of these people in one room?’

That’s how WHO KNEW started. Beginning in 2015, our sold out events feature the most innovative minds, anarchists, entrepreneurs and trend setters in the music industry. Each event highlights a topic that’s real and right now.  Real conversations. Real connections.”
