NMS started in 1980 as a gathering of a couple hundred industry people to discuss a better music business. Shortly after, NMS grew to become the most influential multi-day conference and festival – attracting thousands of industry and artists from around the world.

The original NMS wrapped in 1994 then returned again in 2009 as a multi-city conference. In 2016, NMS shifted away from the multi-day event to focus on more intensive discussions and introduced the NMSessions. Always evolving and adapting, NMS now hosts the NMSessions, Open Forums, Networking events, and the live-streaming show, The Outsiders.

NMS is where the unconventional have a platform for radical conversations about the music business.
