by Jason Rzucidlo
AmericaJR@AmericaJR.com

The first-ever Motor City Music Conference (MC2) will take place on April 20-24, 2005 across 45 different venues in Downtown Detroit with 450 different bands. There will also be a tradeshow inside Cobo Center.

Detroit is a city with lots of music in its history. You can remember the Motown Sound as well as artists like Eminem, Kid Rock, Madonna, D12, Josh Gracin and Uncle Kracker. It's one of the reasons why we got our Hard Rock Cafe.

The Detroit Music Awards kicks off all the fun. It will be held at the State Theatre on Wednesday, April 20th at 8 p.m. Tickets are still available and can be purchased here.

There will be 450 artists performing across Detroit and Hamtramck. Half of them will be local artists and half will be established artists. Almost every music genre will be represented: Rock, Hip Hop, R&B/Soul, World Beat, Electronic/Techno, Indie, Country and Blues.

Some of the established artists that will be performing this year include Moby, The Black Keys, Trail of the Dead, Derrick May, Kevin Saunderson, Snoop Dog, The Game, Proof from D12, The Detroit Cobras, The Dirt Bombs, Me Without You, The Paybacks, Blanche, Paradime and the Dirty Americans. Click here for the complete schedule.

There will be 25 music industry panels discussions at Cobo Center. They will be held by professionals such as artists, record label representatives, managers, booking agents and program directors. There will also be workshops for people interested in songwriting and music production.

A trade show will be held in the Michigan room of the Cobo Center with over 100 exhibitors. There will be local radio stations, record labels and vendors in the music industry.

Jones Soda will be giving away a bottle each day. They will be designed by rock artists from Detroit. If you come each day, you can collect all four!

Saturday, April 23rd is "Kids Day." All kids 17 and under can get into all the events for a low price of $5.00 at the tradeshow inside Cobo.
