The Young Entertainment Professionals network creates a platform for the entertainment industry to thrive in a supportive and creative environment for the betterment of its members as well as the industry as a whole through networking events, showcases, mentorship and educational development.



  • There is no formal membership application. Just join our mailing list and start coming out to our events!
  • Our events are open to all aspiring and active entertainment industry professionals.
  • We do our best to keep most of the events open to all ages, but please take note if an event says it is 18+ or 21+.
  • Don't be afraid to walk up and introduce yourself to people at our events. We're all there to do the same thing - NETWORK!
  • Right now, we don't have a way for people to volunteer within YEP, but we are working on it.
  • Also, YEP and it's "side-hustling millennials" were featured online by Forbes, which we just think is pretty darn cool! Check out the article here! 



YEP puts on a wide array of events that create opportunities for young entertainment professionals to get together and connect. From shows and trivia nights, to mixers and educational seminars, there's always something going on. Get all the details/updates about our upcoming events by joining the YEP mailing list or checking our Upcoming YEP Events page.


Don't miss our YEP Rewind shows at Basement East when we throw it back to a different decade of jams! 80's Rock, 90's Pop, Classic Country... we do it all, and we bring in some of Nashville's most talented singer/songwriters to do it.


We have mixers throughout the year for ambitious young industry professionals like yourself to come out and meet people in town chasing the same dreams as you. It's a fun, casual way to connect and check out some cool bars, restaurants, and venues around Nashville. Most of these mixers are 18+, but be sure to check our emails/flyers in case we happen to have one that is 21+.



Don't miss our yearly Musicprenuer series giving students and young entertainment professionals alike the opportunity to hear from the entertainment industry's greatest minds.


Who doesn't love a good trivia night?! Join us for an evening of music trivia the first Thursday of every month at 6pm at Tin Roof on Demonbruen. Come with a team of 4 or join in with other groups and meet some cool people - and of course, there's always some fun prizes!




Come out and see some of Nashville's best up and coming songwriters. We always try to have a mix of signed and unsigned writers to help showcase new talent in our city! Just a reminder that events at The Basement are for ages 21+ only.



Haven't you heard? Nashville is the place to be! We love partnering with other companies and events around town. Be on the lookout for some of our YEP Nights at the Nashville Sounds, Predators games, and of course our events at the Grand Ole Opry!
