Save the Dates, The NON-COMMvention Returns as an In-Person Event

After two years in the virtual world, the annual NON-COMMvention will return to WXPN/Philadelphia as an in-person event May 3-6, 2022.

It will be the twentieth time that the community of Triple A public radio stations and their music industry cohorts have gathered in person to discuss the state of business and enjoy music showcases. The event will follow a familiar path, with an opening party Tuesday night and concluding with Friday’s Free at Noon show.

While the dates and framework are set, there are many slots to fill.

Now is the time to reach out to NON-COMM founder Dan Reed to discuss artist showcases as well as sponsorship opportunities.

Background on the Event:

For two decades, public (non-commercial) radio music programmers and managers, music industry representatives, and music media from across North America have come together each year to uncover the very best in new music from emerging and established artists.

This annual gathering of Triple A music professionals, is produced by WXPN/Philadelphia. In past years musical showcases featuring 30+ of today’s leading artists and bands from around the world occur alongside conference sessions that explore the best practices, opportunities, and challenges for stations with a focus on artist and community impact and sustainability.

The NON-COMMvention in recent years has partnered with the noncomMUSIC Alliance to provide an additional day of programming on topics concerning non-commercial music stations across all genres.
