Part of IMSTA’s work as a nonprofit is to educate and foster a conversation among music software and hardware users and manufacturers on the value of purchasing the music software products they use rather than using illegal versions. IMSTA FESTA events promote IMSTA’s central message and slogan: Buy the Software You Use. The organization began this work more than a decade ago and has since launched IMSTA FESTA events in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Toronto, and now Miami. These events are unique in that they give end users — from students to seasoned professionals — a no-cost opportunity to see the latest in music technology and to engage with professionals who are shaping the industry today.
