Call For Submissions: 2016 KindieComm Industry Showcase

kindie-logo-03As part of our next KindieComm, we are excited to host the 2016 KindieComm Industry Showcase – Saturday, April 2 at World Cafe Live in Philadelphia – starting 8pm.

The KindieComm Industry Showcase will continue the tradition of being basically a party for people doing music for families, with dozens of musicians gathering together to play for each other and folks in the industry. Held within the beautiful World Cafe Live venue, which was built from the ground-up with the musician in mind – the showcase is a chance to celebrate the wild, wonderful world of Kindie!

Click here to learn more and to submit your name for consideration – deadline for submission is November 13, 2015!

Thank You!

What an incredible KindieComm Weekend!

Thanks to everyone who made their way to Philadelphia for KindieComm 2015 … special thanks to all the musicians who performed Saturday night in the KindieComm Industry Showcase – and to those musicians who joined us for our public celebration at the Kids Corner Music Festival on Sunday, March 22.

Relive the magic of the weekend with our Saturday and Sunday slideshows below!



The Lay Of The Land

KindieComm Map

Above you’ll see a general map for use this weekend while at KindieComm. Many are coming in via Amtrak or regional rail … if so, you’ll be just two blocks away from 3025 Walnut Street (home to WXPN and also World Cafe Live … and this weekend, home to KindieComm!)

If you were lucky enough to score a room at out host hotel (before they sold out!) you’ll be at the corner of 36th and Chestnut Street at the Sheraton University City Philadelphia hotel. A casual walk down Chestnut Street to 31st will lead you to the lower entrance to World Cafe Live. Once inside, take the stairs up (or the elevator) and join us!

We’ll have a print out of several nearby restaurants to consider for your dinner break – additionally World Cafe Live will be open for dinner in case you just want to stay put until the Industry Showcase that evening. We’ve marked where these dining spots are – just to give you an idea of how many options will be at your fingertips.

Copies of this map will be at the KindieComm Registration Table – feel free to grab one.

Welcome Back Tim
