NEXTBEAT will bring in two incredible djs to showcase their product premier. The NEXTBEAT portable control unit with a wireless function allows performers to move around with freedom from the main device. In contrast to the traditional style of DJs performing inside booths, being able to move closer to the audience creates a dramatic change, enabling the audience to feel more relation with the DJ. Also, Michael Sarysz from NBC’s ‘Mamas Boy’ will be performing a two hour DJ slot.

Music, its artists and message permeate all aspects of modern culture from social undertones to politics and fashion. Partnerships between artists and products push the influence of cultural icons to an ever-greater reach thus contributing to and in many cases eclipsing; perhaps even circumventing, all traditional notions of what we call 'artist development'. This panel will cover various levels of sponsorship / partnership for your events, artist product endorsements and the cross pollination between Music, Fashion, Film, Television, and so much more... Is music riding a corporate wave to success or vice versa? From the drawing room to your living room this is an inside glimpse from the experts who bring the ideas! Free admission, space is limited. Arrive esrly to guarantee admission.
