Live Nation and Black Music Action Coalition Announce New Partnership

Live Nation has announced a new partnership with the Black Music Action Coalition (BMAC), a U.S.-based organization dedicated to advocating for Black artists and professionals within the music industry. This collaboration aims to launch a comprehensive music business course and paid internship program, specifically targeting non-college-bound individuals aspiring to enter the music business sector.

The program is designed to provide a one-week intensive course in Los Angeles, followed by a four-month paid internship at Live Nation. This initiative is not just about education but also about providing real-world experience and opportunities within the industry. Additionally, some participants will have the chance to join Live Nation’s ‘School of Live Apprenticeship Program,’ which includes a six-month paid internship.

Live Nation’s commitment extends beyond the program as they have also invested in operational support for BMAC, reinforcing the partnership’s long-term vision. This move is part of a broader effort by BMAC, which has been actively involved in various initiatives, including the recent announcement of a new Congressional Hip Hop Power and Justice Task Force. This task force, announced by Democrat politician Jamaal Bowman, aims to leverage hip-hop artists and music to address issues such as economic equality, affordable housing, and racial justice.

The partnership between Live Nation and BMAC is a step towards creating more access and equity within the music industry. It reflects a shared commitment to nurturing talent and opening doors for those who may not have traditional academic backgrounds but possess a passion for music and the business behind it.

As the program is set to kick off this summer, it represents a promising opportunity for aspiring music business professionals across the country to gain invaluable experience and make their mark in the live music industry.
