AEG Live has partnered with In The City for the two-day U.S. edition of the annual Manchester, England-based music convention.

The inaugural In the City of New York will take place June 13-14. It will host approximately 500 music industry professionals who will congregate at the city's W Hotel for a series of panels, seminars and other related events.

At night on each day, attendees will be invited to the 2,100-seat Nokia Theatre Times Square to watch performances from up-and-coming U.K. acts. Stateside talent will also be showcased in other venues across Manhattan.

In the City was founded in 1992 by Yvette Livesey and Anthony H. Wilson. Since its debut in Manchester, the convention has hosted music industry discussions by day and live music by night. Acts that have performed at the city-based event include Radiohead, Oasis, Arctic Monkeys, Foo Fighters, Coldplay, Elastica and Daft Punk.
