How do I know which segment of WMC is for me?
Industry and Access are designed and programmed for two distinctive audiences. If you have been working in the industry or in industries adjacent to the music business (tech, fashion, etc.) Industry is for you. If you are a college student or fan looking to dive deeper into the culture, DJing/Production and potentially join the industry then Access is for you.
How do I get into the // Industry segment of WMC?
Once registration opens Industry participants will be either invited directly by WMC officials or asked to apply online with their credentials. Attendees must show proof that they are currently working in music, tech, fashion, or other adjacent industries to gain admittance.
What can I expect at // Industry?
Industry badge holders will have access to specific programming related to business, technology, and thought leadership. Fresh panel topics that will bring amazing perspectives from both inside and outside the core music industry. There will also be private special events that allow attendees to network in a casual environment with their peers. All Industry badge holders will also be able to attend the Access portion of the conference as well.
What can I expect at // Access?
Access badge holders will be able to mingle with some of the worlds top gear companies, attend DJ/Production workshops, see the latest in festival camping gear, shop for exclusive merch, gear, and collectible vinyl/tapes/cds, attend mentor workshops with some of the industry biggest names, watch panels with music industry professionals and top artists and much more. If you are super fan looking to dive deeper or looking for your next step after college, Access has it all – even exclusive access to top evening events with some of the biggest names in electronic music.
Will there be day passes to WMC?
Due to limited capacity chances are that WMC will sell out and day passes will not be available, but should there be excess inventory day passes will be available at registration.
Are there travel discounts?
MMW and WMC will have room blocks for all attendees wishing to stay at the FAENA properties, these rooms will go fast so we highly recommend booking early.
There will also be preferred airline and ride share rates, please check our Travel section once registration opens.
Do I get into any parties with my badge?
WMC will partner with several top promoters to give our attendees access to some of the best nightlife on the beach and beyond. From house to techno, drum and bass to bass music to main stage bangers – there will be something for every musical taste. Parties will be listed in March with more details.
