EDMbiz Announces 2015 Panels & Guest Speakers List

Before dance music took over America, Miami championed one of the sole business and entertainment events centered around EDM. Winter Music Conference and Miami Music Week continues to draw thousands to Miami every March, but a new event in Las Vegas has cemented itself as one of EDM's most compelling conferences combining business and music. EDMbiz hits Las Vegas for its fourth year on June 16-18, 2015, leading up to EDC Vegas on June 19-21.

EDMbiz recently announced its first round of panels and guest speakers for its fourth annual event, and the full list encompasses everyone from headlining producers to label CEOs. Notable guest speakers include Insomniac Events founder & CEO Pasquale Rotella, Krewella, Tommie Sunshine, Billboard CEO John Amato, EDM record label Monstercat CEO Mike Darlington, and EDM.com's very own co-founder and CEO Ethan Baer.
