The Latin Alternative Music Conference is set to return in virtual form this year with dates scheduled for the week of Cinco de Mayo (May 4-7).

Like last year, when it was held online for the first ever due to the novel coronavirus, the 22nd annual LAMC will offer free registration for panels, workshops and showcases. The second edition of the Wonder Women of Latin Music recognitions honoring women making a difference in the Latin music industry is also set to take place this year.

Launched in 2020 and presented by Amazon Music, past Wonder Women honorees include Rebeca León (Lionfish Entertainment), Jennifer D'Cunha (Apple Music), Yvonne Drazan (peermusic) and Billboard's own Leila Cobo, among others.

Standout panels from last year's conference included a discussion on mental health, a panel on the future of touring and a hitmakers roundtable with artists such as Mala Rodríguez, Lido Pimienta, Francisca Valenzuela, Tatiana Haze, Mabiland, Circo and Javiera Mena providing a soundtrack with intimate performances from their homes.

More information about the schedule will be announced in the upcoming weeks.
