Alex Williams, Podcast HotelPodcast Hotel, the latest in a series of West Coast podcast events, is slated for April 20-21 in San Francisco at the Swedish American Hall.

Billed as “two days of discussion around the intersection of technology, indie music and indie film,” Podcast Hotel features lectures, concerts and discussions on digital media issues such as distribution, artists rights, the state of the Vlogosphere, women breaking through in the entertainment industry, and Net Neutrality.

Alex Williams, organizer of the event (pictured above right), tells PodcastingNews: “Copyright issues, politics and the age of the Internet rock star are the big topics for Podcast Hotel San Francisco. Andew Baron of Rocketboom, Robert Scoble and a number of artists, indie label managers, music attorneys and podcasters will be there in abundance. Plus, we have two great bands, [indie electro funksters] Dat’r and [experimental soul popsters] Honeycut, playing an invite-only party at a hot new club in downtown San Francisco. Should be a gig.”

Colette VogeleOther podcasting luminaries speaking at the conference include Indiefeed’s Chris MacDonald, Podcast Legal Guide author and attorney Colette Vogele (in picture at right), Gnomedex founder Chris Pirillo, recently freed vlogger Josh Wolf, Justin.TV, and many others.

Tickets are available online and at the door. A single-day pass is $50, the concert is $20, and an all-access ticket costs $120.
