THE SEVENTH ANNUAL SYNC UP CONFERENCE
Sync Up is the entertainment industry conference during Jazz Fest. It's produced and presented by the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Foundation, the nonprofit that owns the festival.
With conference sessions on the Friday and Saturday mornings on both weekends of Jazz Fest - plus three days of film screenings during the week in between - Sync Up covers the gamut of today's entertainment industry from the perspective of independent artists. Leaders in music, film and digital media discuss a wide range of topics, from crowdfunding and independent distribution to social media, touring and more.
It all takes place at the New Orleans Museum of Art, just a few blocks from the Fair Grounds.
