DBMC may not be the biggest music conference in the northeast, but it has garnered more than its fair share of critical acclaim, rave reviews and enthusiastic return participants. This is due in no small part to the consistent quality of talent and its location.

Dewey Beach sits on a narrow peninsula between the Atlantic Ocean and Rehoboth Bay. The result is a casual, laid-back vibe that almost seems like a beach vacation. All performance venues are within a few blocks walking distance of the main conference area. No cabs, no hassle, no venues that are hopelessly disconnected from the center of activity.

With three nights of showcases and two days of demo & mentoring sessions, tradeshow and industry meet & greet events, there are plenty of opportunites to work at furthering your music career...or just experience some great performances. Industry meet & greets provide you with the opportunity to hear industry professionals discuss the issues of the day in an informal setting. Mentoring sessions and demo listening sessions allow you to get valuable one-on-one advice about your music and your career path.
The charm of DBMC lies in its intimate and friendly atmosphere as registrants interact with panelists, speakers, exhibitors, musicians and professionals from all aspects of the music industry. DBMC also offers unique events such as industry cruises on the bay and VIP parties at outdoor beach clubs.

"Billy Milano and I went to the Dewey Beach Music Conference and came home with a pile of music to listen to. In that pile we found a diamond in the rough that is so incredible even we can't believe it. That says it all." Rob Grenoble,
Infidel Records

Dewey Beach was ABSOLUTELY one of the most fun conferences I've ever attended. Having all the bands within walking distance at the beach on a beautiful weekend was a major plus. The entire conference was on time, diverse and exciting. The Producer Panel I sat on was great in the "living room" atmosphere. Definitely a different feel than the normal "panels." I can't wait till next year!!
