WHAT:
On September 25th IMSTA FESTA, a celebration of music software is coming to the heart of New York City. The First IMSTA FESTA started in Japan where it was highly successful for music technology companies, producers and hobbyists alike. IMSTA FESTA brings a collection of the top audio technology companies together in an environment where they can interact with music makers face-to-face. Anyone who makes music will benefit from this event in a number of ways.

IMSTA FESTA is a FREE event. Open to anyone interested in the art of music making; professionals, semi-Pros, hobbyists and students. All visitors must register on-line www.imsta.org
