Here's a real festival you can sink your teeth into.

The concept is a simple one: do your music full-time and get paid for it. Geared toward the Indie artist, Tim Sweeney's workshops will tackle how to get great exposure for your music, how to build a fan base, how to find ways to sell more CDs, and finding ways to impact people with your music.

"TAXI is the best listening audience that one could hope for. These guys have valuable insight into music and are very helpful with their criticisms. I am establishing some great contacts and yes, I have signed a couple of tunes to a publisher."
