Will there be day passes to WMC?

No. WMC will only issue badges for the entire conference.

Are there travel discounts?

WMC will have room blocks for our attendees located at various hotels around the conference. Once you register for your badge you will receive a list of participating hotels and the code needed to book the hotel.

Do I get into any parties with my badge?

WMC will partner with several top promoters to give our Plus and Pro level badge holders access to some of the best nightlife on the beach and beyond. From house, techno and bass music to main stage bangers – there will be something for every musical taste. Parties will be listed in March with more details. **Please note that the Access badge holder will NOT have free or preferred entry to these sanctioned events, just events at MMW Oasis.

Is there any programming on Monday?

Yes, this year we will be hosting an official opening party at the Miami Music Week Oasis @ The Generator Miami – which is located a short walk from the conference itself.

What is the MMW Oasis?

The new MMW Oasis @ The Generator Miami will be a hub for our WMC badge holders and invited guests during Miami Music Week. The Oasis is located at 3120 Collins Ave right across the street from the Faena Hotel and will host daily pool parties, yoga sessions, and other activities to help you refresh, network and soak in those Miami vibes. Check MiamiMusicWeek.com regularly for programming updates.

Will I get a WMC bag with my badge this year?

For 2020 we have created a new tiered system for our badges to help attendees dial in the right experience for their needs. The Plus and Pro badges will each get a bag, with Plus badges getting a handy WMC tote and Pro badge holders receiving a limited edition 35th anniversary messenger bag.


Having only missed the very first year of WMC in 1985, it was 1986-1990 that initially placed me on the map globally due to the international attendance of the entire dance music community. All throughout the 90s I was often getting written about by various high profile mags and websites for having contributed to help break many artists, DJs, producers and remixers. WMC enabled me to bring many top industry people together all under one roof, especially at Groove Jet, where house music officially met Techno in my sets and it’s all been uphill since…TBC

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.

Miami has always been a place I’ve considered home and WMC was essential for me and the label in many ways. From showcasing our new music to keeping up with all the new artists and releases. It was the official kickoff of the year and I’m happy to see it thriving again.

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.

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!
