KindieFest is the first family music conference that embraces the family music world in all of its diversity. Held annually in Brooklyn, the event brings together artists, writers, radio, TV, and many more for panels, an industry showcase, and a public music festival. It grew out of events in 2006 and 2007 to become a conference starting in 2007. It is produced by Tor Hyams, Stephanie Mayers, Mona Kayhan, and Bill Childs.
