This month, an icon is reborn. With just over a week away, Winter Music Conference (WMC) returns to the shores of Miami Beach with a refreshed perspective. Ahead of the conference, we’re launching our brand-new WMC 2019 trailer. Watch it in full above.

Originally launched in 1985, WMC is the longest-running music convention focused on the electronic music industry and today stands as one of the most iconic brands in the global dance music world, an entire business it helped launch and legitimize. Every year during March in Miami Beach, WMC brings together leading industry professionals, record labels, artists, and thought leaders from across the world to discuss the issues of today and the trends of tomorrow via thoughtful programming, in-depth panels, game-changing keynote speakers, and intimate seminars.

The newly relaunched WMC has officially joined the Miami Music Week (MMW) family. To celebrate, we are offering free access to more than 20 sanctioned MMW parties, in addition to the plethora of amenities and events that come with your WMC 2019 badges, including panels and keynotes, DJ/production workshops, product demos, networking mixers, and much more.

WMC 2019 returns to Miami Beach to bring together a new generation of industry professionals and music consumers for a week of unforgettable experiences, insightful programming, and thought-provoking talks. The newly envisioned WMC will now offer two distinct segments targeted at industry professionals as well as music consumers looking to learn more about this exciting industry and the music, technology, and culture that powers it.

I’m so glad to see WMC rebooted with such thoughtful content and first-class curation. It’s been a long time since the industry had a must-do American event and this is it. The reborn WMC!

I first went to WMC ’87, the year I started Big Beat. It was an incredibly inspiring congregation of indie labels, DJs, artists, songwriters, producers and dance music lovers dedicated to breaking and discovering new music. WMC has been instrumental in furthering the dance and electronic cause; keeping the community connected, vital and relevant, and serving as an amazing springboard for talent. It’s a fantastic crucible for the future of dance music. Long may it live.

Winter Music Conference is my ground zero. It has always provided the perfect storm of opportunity and excitement for up and coming artists, including myself back in 2003, where I first caught a glimpse of how it felt to have an audience respond to my work. Over the years, I’ve always made it a point to have WMC in my calendar because that’s the spot where everyone congregates and you can feel it in the air. Creativity, brother and sisterhood, FUN and most of all the chance to come together as a community and celebrate the reason we are all here—the music.”



The Winter Music Conference represents a chance for Beatport to connect directly with our customer community. Having a strong conference means we have a platform to embrace the entire spectrum of electronic music culture. We are proud to support the resurgence of this great event.
