From the Showplace Theater to DiG to secret locations around the city, the 2017 Vibrations Music Festival and Conference is turning out to be one of the Buffalo’s biggest, baddest music events to date. The festival showcases some serious talents, while the conference helps artists to promote themselves in ways that are typically considered impossible. By pulling together industry knowhow, top talents, regarded venues and a city that finally starting to grasp the importance of these types of gatherings, Vibrations is leading the way for many who are looking to break the mold as we know it.
In short, this festival is created to bring the Music & Entertainment industry to Western NY.
What if Buffalo was the place to be, to tap into the industry? What if Buffalo was the place with open doors? What if Buffalo was considered a destination for music talents of all caliber, looking to reach the next level?
