Miami, Florida -- The Winter Music Conference (WMC) has announced the dates for their 29th annual program, which is scheduled for March 21-30 in Miami Beach.
The seminal conference, designed as a global platform for electronic music, will offer 10 days of music programming, seminars, events, and parties. WMC's 28th installment featured more than 2,100 artists and DJs performing at more than 133 venues throughout Miami, and the event also focuses on bringing together electronic music's most innovative artists and professionals in an effort to advance electronic music. Last year's presentations included a Q&A session with IDMA Lifetime Achievement recipient Nile Rodgers, who released new collaborations with Daft Punk and Avicii later in the year, as well as discussions with EDM newcomers like R3hab.
While WMC's club and poolside events, DJ sets, live performances, and parties will take place throughout the ten days of the festival, the conference's music industry panels and seminars will run from March 25-28 at the Miami Beach Convention Center. The event's music trade show and exhibit area, which focus on EDM trends and gear, is scheduled for March 24-25.
WMC's Industry Badge will be offered at the promotional Early Bird Registration rate of $245 until September 11, when prices will increase to $295. From there, prices will steadily rise, topping off at a $495 walk-up rate. Individual Remixing and Editing Workshop Passes will also be available for $75. In addition to panel and seminar entry, WMC badges also include access to featured Q&A's, South Beach Sessions, Demo Listening Workshops, the DJ Spin-Off, Trade Shows and Exhibits, Hardware and Software Demonstrations, the 29th Annual International Dance Music Awards, and the VJ Challenge as well as a WMC Sample Sack and WMC eLounge networking opportunities. Badgeholders will also be privy to WMC hotel and travel rates.
