The Best of the 2011 Latin Alternative Music Conference

Last week, New York’s hippest venues were taken over by music lovers and music industry insiders for the annual Latin Alternative Music Conference, a gathering of the very best up-and-coming artists from Latin America. In it’s 12th year, the LAMC has grown from fringe festival to a see-and-be-seen event for anyone who wants to be on the cutting edge of alternative music. The fest has helped hundreds of artists, from Calle 13 to Manu Chao and even Pitbull, enter the consciousness of the global music scene.
