Now in its 8th year, the Atlantis staff works year round to provide the best networking, learning and party experience for up and coming professionals and unsigned artists from across the globe by bringing in the acts and the industry people that are relevant in today's music business. The Atlantis staff is made up of musicians, managers, talent buyers, promoters and college students. In other words, at the end of the Atlantis event, we donÕt go back to our Òreal' jobs, like running a magazine or a sponsorship company, we immediately begin work on next years event because this is what we do 365 days a year. This is how we have been able to stand behind our 1997 mission statement; Atlantis is the greatest platform of discovery for new talent in America. This may not be as cool as Òshowcasing' 600 signed acts, but we here at Atlantis think that showcasing 300 unsigned acts out of 320 is real cool. We continue to be one of the cheapest tickets of its kind in the states in a city with one of the largest airport hubs in the world making us the undeniable choice if you are looking to understand why they donÕt call this the ÒMusic Music', but rather, The Music Business'. Come see who Òthey' are! http://www.atlantismusic.com
