Insomniac has been producing massive electronic music events since 1993 including Nocturnal Wonderland, Audiotistic and Electric Daisy Carnival (EDC) so it makes perfect sense that they would initiate the EDMBiz conference the week before EDC Las Vegas this year.

This one-of-a-kind event will unite industry leaders and pioneers of EDM in a place where they can focus on the continuing momentum of a genre with rapidly rising popularity and cultural relevance. The roster of topics includes technology platforms, social media, licensing, and sustaining community, humanity and credibility during a period of massive growth.

The globally respected DJ and tastemaker Jason Bentley will serve as the conference host. Electronic artists and executives from AM Only, Atlantic Records, Burning Man, Twitter, Turntable.fm, Red Light Management and many more, will have a presence as panelists and keynote speakers. 

“The EDM lifestyle touches all corners of pop culture today and by creating a smart and effective conference just ahead of the single largest electronic dance music festival in North America, EDMbiz is uniquely positioned to be an essential crossroads for new ideas and opportunities.”

EDC will draw artist like Kaskade, Tiësto, and Avicii to Las Vegas so who knows who will turn up at the EDMBiz conference to share their experience.
