Press Play is a book and music fair celebrating the merits of independent publishing and the dissemination of knowledge and art through publication, recorded sound, and their expanded mediums.

Over two days (June 28-29) of live performances, panels, and workshops, this year’s fair invites print and digital publishers, recording artists and labels, and the communities that support them to consider how artistic expression is created through the creation of supportive infrastructure.

This year's Press Play centers publishing as a network in its ability to create spaces and facilitate resources, especially those within the intersection of art and commerce. Press Play aims to provide a holistic program that educates, presents, and explores the ways intentional dissemination of art and information can impact a public.
