The goal of NYS Music is to celebrate all of the tremendous talent across New York State. From Long Island to Plattsburgh, Albany to Buffalo, there is no shortage of great artists and venues across the Empire State. This year saw many New York artists gain national recognition and new venues open, attracting top national acts. Festivals occur in every corner of the state in all seasons. Local venues continue to support local musicians. New York State music is in a good place heading into the new year.
As our readers, you play a major role in helping the scene grow. You promote your favorites through social media. You organize, attend, perform and volunteer at festivals. You share the music. Now it’s time to put this into one location the NYS Music Best of 2016 Readers Poll.
This year, NYS Music is asking you, our loyal readers, to chime in. The Readers Poll asks for your opinions: Who is the next up-and-coming NYS artist? Which is the best NYS festival?
