Watch the WMC 2019 Trailer


Thursday, March 14th, 2019 |

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.

Watch the WMC 2019 trailer in full above and get your WMC badges now to get access to all the industry knowledge and late-night partying you’ll need this Miami season.


Testimonials

Before there was Ultra Music Festival, there was The Winter Music Conference, the annual coming together of the dance music tribes. Miami in March is a fundamental place to be from a business perspective, and has always given me endless opportunities for discovering new partnerships and talent. WMC brings together the dance music industry and surrounding culture like no other event in America. I’ve been attending WMC for nearly 20 years, and I’m very much looking forward to experiencing its evolution in 2019.

Partner/founder, Deckstar Artist Management

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.


Craig Kallman

CEO & Co-Chairman Atlantic Records, Founder Big Beat Records

“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.”

WMC is and has always been the lifeblood of the dance music scene. Never missed a year since ’96, I can’t imagine Amsterdam Dance Event or Ibiza Music Summit existing without the blueprint that WMC originated. Seeing this revived is absolutely essential to reunifying the North American scene surrounding electronic music and its fringes.
