Miami readies landmark Winter Music Conference with initial 2014 schedule
Placed comfortably in-between Amsterdam Dance Event and Ibiza’s International Music Summit, Miami Beach once again welcomes the buzz of Winter Music Conference, running from March 22 through 30 for 2014. As per usual, the Florida-hosted calendar highlight is oozing with industrious events, boasting a steady run of pool parties, label showcases, industry events, panels and seminars in somewhat sunnier remits than that of its European cousin ADE some five months before.
For 2014, Miami Beach Convention Centre is where this years industry panels take place. Among the wealth of expert led panels covering every imaginable facet of the business, Hardwell marks the first of many high-profile additions to this year’s billing to shed some light on the months since his inauguration as DJ Mag’s 2013 poll champion. Early party announcements come in the form of Spinnin Sessions, Protocol’s own label night and an intense house spectacle from Toolroom Knights and Stereo Productions – all leading up to the Ultra Music Festival’s weekend in the spotlight.
Amongst the annual proceedings sits the 29th International Dance Music Awards (IDMAs), celebrating the cream of the professional crop and spotlighting artists, brands and agencies alike for their contributions to the industry. Be sure to vote for your favorite artists, as well as Dancing Astronaut as ‘Best Music Media Resource’ over at the official WMC voting page and click here for the full schedule. Keep your eyes peeled for DA’s own WMC hub and a special run of coverage enroute to the annual event.
