The C2SV Technology Conference and Music Festival arrives, September 26th through the 29th, with Iggy And The Stooges headlining and more than 70 Silicon Valley thought leaders and entrepreneurs.

In addition to Iggy And The Stooges, acts performing at 12 venues in downtown San Jose during the festival include, the Lemonheads, the limousines, Thee Oh Sees, Bosnian Rainbows, the Coup, Dam-Funk, Stumblebunny and many more.

The Stooge’s guitarist James Williamson will give the keynote address at the conference, as he represents the kind of creative convergence C2SV is all about. Williamson helped shape early punk and garage rock in the 1970s, but also served as a Silicon Valley tech executive for over three decades after the Stooges imploded during their first run at rock ’n’ roll stardom.

Other highlights of the speaker lineup include Internet personality Robert Scoble (Rackspace, Scobleizer); author and entrepreneur Jeff Stibel (bestseller “Breakpoint”); and Yahoo! chairman Maynard Webb.

“These are actually the people running the companies and building the technology that will transform our future—not just the marketing delegations and creative teams,” said Silicon Valley publisher and C2SV founder Dan Pulcrano. “Attendees will able to interact with visionary players in an environment that’s relaxed and uncrowded.”

Pulcrano continued: “San Jose is a friendly city with excellent amenities. We are inviting the world to experience our music scene, enjoy our weather, taste our food and celebrate the digital culture explosion. It’s also a chance for Silicon Valley’s hard-working tech workforce to experience a festival of music and advanced ideas without having to sleep on someone’s couch in another city.”
