Curated by Mondo.NYC co-founders and former CMJ leaders Bobby Haber and Joanne Abbot Green, this year’s artists come from all around the world,— including France, Canada, Spain, the Philippines, and the U.S. — and represent a myriad of genres, including pop, electronic, alternative, indie, rock, and more.

Highlights from this year’s showcase artists include Joe Sumner, son of legendary musician Sting; Matty Marz, one of the first 45 graduates of the year-long inaugural intensive mentorship program at the Los Angeles Academy for Artists & Music Production (LAAMP); Amanda Ayala, a contestant on The Voice Season 9, chosen by Adam Levine, and the Amazon show Who Will Rock YouBrie Stoner, whose music has been featured in campaigns for Victoria’s Secret and in the hit Netflix show Orange Is The New Black; 24-year-old GRAMMY-winning blues guitarist Christone “Kingfish” Ingram; GRAMMY-nominated saxophonist Jay Rodriguez, who has performed and recorded with artists since the age of 15 including Dizzy Gillespie, James Brown, Isaac Hayes, Dave Matthews, Cab Calloway, Miley Cyrus, Prince, and more; and Desdemona’s Dream featuring lead singer Desi the robot: a creative fusion of music, technology, AI, and performance art. In addition, Ethiopia-born, Canada-based artist Zada will make her U.S. debut at Mondo.NYC with a much-anticipated debut album coming in February.

“We’re incredibly excited to be sharing our 2023 showcase agenda, and getting to host so many amazing artists at five of the best independent venues across New York City,” said Heather de Armas, Showcase Director of Mondo.NYC. “We’re so proud of how diverse this year’s lineup is, with acts from the Philippines to Italy, and we can’t wait to bring their music to the live and virtual attendees.”

“In addition to the live in-person performances taking place every night of Mondo.NYC this year, I’m also thrilled that our online showcases will return, giving those who cannot travel to NYC for the festival a chance to take a bite of the Big Apple in their own homes,” said Joanne Abbot Green, Founder, Managing Director, and Executive Producer of Mondo.NYC. “We introduced these online sessions during the Covid-19 pandemic, and the response has been amazing. We’re glad to keep the tradition going!”
