2020: A Global Turning Point

We’ve all experienced an unimaginable confluence of events that have dramatically changed our industry and our world.

Mondo’s Fifth Anniversary – Using the Collective Power of Our Voices

We are creatives, inventors, connectors, educators, entrepreneurs and fans.


Leaders from the fields of music, technology, arts, activism, politics, academia, human

rights, law, finance, sustainability, wellness and more gather to pursue actionable best

practices, technological innovations, career pathways, and equal opportunities for all

communities during this time of economic and social volatility.

And it all happens on the eve of perhaps the most important presidential election in American history. 

Mondo 2020: (Mostly) Virtual + (Hopefully) a bit of NYC IRL

Hosting a large-capacity event in New York City during the COVID-19 pandemic is not

possible at this time. While we hope to be able to hold a limited number of intimate in-person

events in NYC, the Mondo.NYC conference and music showcase festival will be

presented as an interactive virtual event and livestream around the world.

A different kind of virtual event. Connective, immersive and inspiring. And with one-on-one interaction, up close and personal.

As a virtual event, Mondo will bring the music world together as never before. Reconnect with old friends, forge new alliances, and roll up your sleeves because there is much work to be done.


And, of course, be introduced to great new artists, technology and experience some  of the world’s best new music.
