EDC Las Vegas is one of the most anticipated festivals of the summer season. Taking place in the desert, the Las Vegas Motor Speedway is transformed into a mystical, fantastical world where the people attending are the headliners of the festival. But before the three days of raving and world-class electronic dance music, make sure to check out EDMbiz 2015 the week beforehand for an all-encompassing look at the blossoming EDM industry.

Amongst the flashy nature of Las Vegas, EDMbiz looks to tame the ostentatious environment by opening a candid setting for one of the music scene’s largest growing genre and its leaders to have a forum to discuss the future of the scene. The parties will always be going on in Vegas and EDC Las Vegas is the ultimate festival experience following the conference and expo. EDMBiz provides an entirely new experience from the atypical festival.

It gives attendees a different perspective. It allows them to see past, current, and future states of the EDM scene from the individuals who run it and then see it directly in action following the conference. Last year’s panelists and speakers included two- time #1 DJ Mag winner Hardwell, Andrew Keller – Director of A&R for Columbia Records, Marian Goodell – Co-Owner/Producer of Burning Man, Steve Aoki, and more. Its the best of the best coming under one roof to collaborate with their insights to make EDM the best it can possibly is.

So why is EDMbiz a must-do event? Because it provides an insight into the EDM industry before one of the world’s most renowned festival commences. It creates an environment that balances work and pleasure. It is located in a city known for entertainment. And, it is three days in which people can create connections that they would never else make if it was not for the dynamic of EDMbiz.

In addition to the stellar panels and workshops similar to last years, this year’s EDMbiz will be even more exciting with the recent announcement of the start-up and A&R contests that will be held. Aspiring entrepreneurs and promising artists will have the floor to pitch or show their track to panels of the world’s most elite figures for the chance for an investment or a release on Insomniac Records in the case of the A&R competition. All the info for EDMbiz can be found here and badges are still available for purchase. Below, watch EDMbiz 2014’s artist panel with Steve Angello, Carl Cox, Borgore, and more.
