An electronic music tour is bringing equipment discounts, music classes and big performances to campuses this spring.
You probably already know that "underground" electronic music is heating up around the world. And you might even know Richie Hawtin, who is a pioneer of Detroit techno.
Hawtin is letting you get in on a trendy music party while touring with a handful of other artists like Dubfire and Dantiez Saunderson. You only have to be 18 to attend these shows.
While the nightside parties will be the focus for many, the tour is also bringing in the Point Blank Music School and guest speakers like Grimes during the day to help you kick start your music career.
Even more helpful is that you can get discounts while lectures are going one through either Guitar Center or Moog Audio. Sponsors like Pioneer, Traktor (Native Instruments), Roland, AIAIAI, Beatport, DJ Techtools, Funktion One, Little Bits, Livid, Splice, and Subpac will also be unveiling and flaunting new products.
