"Collaborating with an influential and ground-breaking company like Amazon on the official live stream for the 2016 Alternative Press Music Awards is going to amplify our show unlike ever before," said Mike Shea, founder and CEO of Alternative Press. "Since our first meeting, the Amazon team has shown a deep understanding of the Altpress community, so being able to work together with them, as well as our friends at Twitch, Monster and Journeys, packs a powerhouse of a punch. Now music fans worldwide will be able to view the AP Music Awards as all the excitement unfolds in real time."

ANNOUNCING NEW APMAs INDUSTRY PANELS & CONVERSATION SERIES

The APMAs are pleased to announce the inclusion of two bonus events surrounding the main awards event, both of which are open to the public.

The Q&A will be hosted by regular MI Conversation Series host and Alternative Press Vice President of Content Development/Senior Editor, Ryan J. Downey. The event will close with an audience Q&A and meet and greet with the band. Please visit https://BeartoothMI.eventbrite.com and enter "MIBT" to receive two tickets! Hurry, space is limited.

The morning of the APMAs (July 18), the Fawcett Center will also host the FREE CreativeLive x APMAs Educational Conference from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Launched in 2015, this conference expands in 2016 to include a day's worth of inspired programming.
