With the Live in Your Living Room NYC Festival and last year's start of a regular programming, international house concert network Live in Your Living Room aims at supporting collaboration between NYC and The Netherlands. In the two year that we are present in NYC, there has already been established a vivid NYC-NL connection with the participation of acts, venues, promotors en record labels. In this way, Live in Your Living Room wants to contribute to the mutual introduction and exchange of music from the alternative indie scene to public of both NYC and The Netherlands.
In the slip stream of the Festival, Live in Your Living Room this year starts with actively promoting a few acts to a wider range of contacts in NYC, with the aim of raising awareness and attention by venues and record companies. At the same time, for NYC-acts The Netherlands can be a start for entering Europe and tour there. This connection is due to last throughout the year, offering acts from both sides of the ocean performing opportunities and a continuous promotion channel.
