National Geographic Music and DC Policy Day

Tomorrow, FMC will be presenting our annual DC Policy Day at Grosvenor Auditorium at National Geographic Music and Radio and National Geographic Live! Before the big event, we wanted to tell you about our Policy Day partner National Geographic’s recently launched record label, National Geographic Music.

The label will record, release, promote and distribute modern music from around the world, including Australia, New Zealand, Japan and Africa. The newly formed imprint plans to represent genres ranging from African pop to Arab classical.

National Geographic Music will be distributed through INgrooves — a digital media distribution company based out of San Francisco that provides clients with marketing, promotion and sync licensing. The label will also operate National Geographic’s Cinema Ventures; feature Films, Kids Entertainment and a radio division.

National Geographic Entertainment, the umbrella of National Geographic Music, is headed by David Beal — a speaker at tomorrow's Policy Day. He'll appear on our Fair Trade Music: Toward a Legitimate Digital Music Marketplace panel.

Online registration for Policy Day is now closed, but we'll be accepting walk-ups. If you can't make it to DC, you can watch a live webcast of the event here.
