Berklee Popular Music Institute (BPMI) presents its 18th annual Epic Event, showcasing artists chosen by students in the experience-based program. The show features pop, rock, Americana, R&B, metal, and electro-pop by students and alumni luhx., Emilia Ali, Jacksonville Kid, Yanina, AJNA, and MDFK.
BPMI enables students to go from the classroom to the stage in every facet of artist development and touring – important preparation for a performance career. The cornerstone is the opportunity for students to perform at some of the most popular summer music festivals, including Essence Festival, Lollapalooza, Osheaga, Outside Lands, Welcome to Rockville, and Country LakeShake.
BPMI’s A&R group reviewed more than 300 submissions and narrowed the field through factors including recordings, videos, social media presence, and live auditions. Each artist is working with a team of three BPMI students throughout the spring, preparing for the festival season. The teams handle artist development, marketing, promotion, tour budgets, digital presence, merchandise, and sponsorships.
