Former Rolling Stones Manager and record producer Andrew Loog Oldham is set to be the keynote speaker at this year's New York Sound City event. We were sent these details:

Oldham will be joined by the veteran music industry executive & manager Danny Fields (Iggy and the Stooges, Ramones, Velvet Underground, Nico, The Doors, MC5) for an hour-long conversation delving deep into the heart, blood and sweat of Rock and Roll.

New York Sound City will take place on Monday March 11th with a day of music industry panels and roundtables at The Wythe Hotel followed by an evening showcase at The Knitting Factory in Williamsburg Brooklyn.

This years' conference also sees the return of the Hip Hop Panel, this time around featuring Grammy Nominated British Emcee Monie Love, music power publicist Lajoyce Brookshire, and Telli Michaels Of Ninjasonik. There will also be a series of roundtable networking events, plus The Anfield Wrap, the UK's 2nd biggest podcast after The Guardian, podcasting live from The Wythe Hotel.

The central theme of the New York Sound City 2013 conference is the notion of British Invasion - how the relationship between New York and Liverpool, two great ports and hotbeds of music and creativity have shaped popular music for generations. From the Rolling Stones and The Beatles with Blues, R&B and Rock n Roll, through to the interplay between UK and US Punk movements with the Sex Pistols, The Clash, Ramones and New York Dolls, and right up to the current EDM explosion; there has always been a symbiotic musical relationship between the US & UK, making Oldham a perfect fit as keynote speaker.

Following the conference New York Sound City will host a showcase of the hottest emerging talent, out of the UK and abroad, at The Knitting Factory Brooklyn. Massively popular British bands The Enemy and Reverend and the Makers are set to headline alongside a curated collection of international up-and-comers including The Tea Street Band, The Verdict, Brodka, KOF and the just-added Wet Nuns.
