non profit purpose

Everyone gets paid but the purpose is to create once in a lifetime music festival experiences to support art, artists and people serving people. Open to pursuing this vision through innovative & creative trademark licensing proposals from players in the sports and live entertainment industries, including studios, talent agencies, music management and/or 360 music companies.

About Floyd VASQUEZ
I'm Floyd Vasquez, music and media entrepreneur, Columbia grad and lifelong learner. This is my effort to create a job as Executive Director of Los Angeles Music Festival®. With artists, co-founders and a Board of Directors, we'll have fun doing great things for Los Angeles and beyond.
I founded Los Angeles Music Festival® in 1996 around this new thing called the World Wide Web. Streaming media was in its infancy and we had live and on demand video from the stages of The Troubadour, Whisky a Go Go, Billboard Live, Viper Room and Dragonfly. Over the years VisionBroadcast LAMF has presented a variety of live and on-demand multimedia content from NY and LA (I was based in NYC for 17 years). It was Over The Top (OTT) content before that was a thing.
As you'll see in my resume below and on my websites, over the years I've earned a living in broadcast journalism and communications. On the music side I operate an online music channel and website. I produce live webcasts, performance videos and artist interviews. In the past I worked as a DJ at Bar 9 in Hells Kitchen and as a public radio DJ on KUNM. Have also served as a board member and volunteer with a successful non-profit concert promotion company. Let's connect!
