With summer about to be in full effect, it's about that time..EDC New York is kicking off this weekend and just a couple weeks away are the International Dance Music Award's voted #1 festival in EDC Vegas. The excitement can only build from here...
That being said, Insomniac has decided to make this year's EDC Vegas in somewhat of an industry extravaganza with the first annual edmbiz. We heard rumors of a Discovery Stage at the festival, but now they are confirmed and you have the chance to play so submit your mix!
Here's what Insomniac and edmbiz released about it:
"Electronic dance music is what it is because of the incredible underground talent constantly pushing the movement forward and the proliferation of the festival experience. The 16th annual Electric Daisy Carnival in Las Vegas aims to reflect the powerful creative undercurrent of aspiring DJ/producers, courtesy of the inaugural EDMbiz conference. All of you diehard DJs and producers out there who are constantly on the lookout for a better way to spread your sonic creations, you now have the chance to do so by performing at the world-renowned EDC Las Vegas. Enter the Discovery Project and EDMbiz may choose you among a selection of winners to dominate the brand new Discovery Stage at EDC Las Vegas. So give us something original, give us something great, give us everything you've got... because you could be our next discovery."
