The fifth year of the EDMbiz Conference & Expo brought together dance music legends and the most influential up-and-coming artists to discuss the history of dance music and its future.
For two days, industry visionaries like Pasquale Rotella, Moby, Armin Van Buuren, Laidback Luke, and Paul Oakenfold came together at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas to participate in keynote speeches, interviews and conferences/
Today’s talented rising stars like Alison Wonderland and Jauz, among others, also joined forces to reflect on what lead to their discovery, success, and the challenges that lie ahead in the current changing dance music industry.
During a special check presentation, Pasquale Rotella revealed that the second edition of the “EDC Week Charity Auction” raised an incredible $119,941.49 for The Shade Tree. He also revealed this year’s recipients of Insomniac’s Charitable Giving Initiative, who will receive funds generated from this year’s EDC Las Vegas. The recipients include Emergency Medicine Resident Research Fund, the Injured Police Officers Fund and the Nevada Childhood Cancer Foundation.
As we look back on yet another successful conference, we also prepare ourselves for the future, bracing for the dance music industry to evolve even further. Check out select photos from the event above and look for more news on EDMbiz coming soon.
