New York Music Month


Sound Development: NYC kicks off the first-ever New York Music Month (NYMM) – a citywide celebration of New York City’s diverse music ecosystem during the month of June. The month is an initiative of the New York City Mayor’s Office of Media & Entertainment in partnership with NY is Music.


Music is central to the city’s economy, social fabric, and cultural identity. NYMM celebrates this with programming and resources for musicians and the music industry; co-branded concerts; advertising and social media campaigns; a website with a comprehensive calendar of free and ticketed music events; educational programs; and much more.
