PopCon 2024 is moving to Los Angeles. This year’s conference will be hosted by the USC Thornton School of Music, in collaboration with the USC Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism. The event, titled “Legacy! Legacy! Music Collections and Archives," will be held March 7-9 on the USC University Park campus.

Now in its 22nd year, PopCon is the premier music writing and pop music studies conference. Held every spring, the conference brings together the world’s leading scholars, journalists, writers and musicians to present papers, roundtables, discussions and performances about popular music.

This year’s Pop Conference is also supported by Critical Minded, a granting and learning initiative cofounded by The Nathan Cummings Foundation and The Ford Foundation to support cultural critics of color in the United States, where they are underrepresented in the coverage of all artistic disciplines.
