In 2019 Winter Music Conference (WMC) returned to Miami Beach after a several year hiatus, and the resulting feedback was nothing short of excellent. In 2020, the legendary WMC is set to celebrate its 35th anniversary, making it the longest-running music industry conference of its kind. 

Playing a significant role in the genesis of electronic music all the way back in 1985, WMC is now stronger and more exciting than ever, boasting greater resources, a renewed sense of purpose, and the direction and guidance of new leadership. Under the greater umbrella of Miami Music Week (MMW), the Winter Music Conference will once again return to The Faena Forum from March 16th to 19th of 2020. The full lineup of panels, speakers, demos, and other insightful programming will be revealed in the coming months.

"I'm so glad to see WMC rebooted with such thoughtful content and first-class curation," commented Patrick Moxey of Ultra Music. "It’s been a long time since the industry had a must-do American event and this is it. The reborn WMC!"

"If you want to know about our industry from the people that make it happen then go to WMC," said world-renowned DJ/producer Carl Cox. "It’s an accelerated masterclass in all things dance music.”

As always, WMC’s organizers strive to offer a diverse array of subject matter for aspiring artists, working professionals, and industry newcomers alike. A perfect step for those looking to take their first steps into the electronic music industry, attending WMC is essential to gaining a deeper understanding of the industry and culture we all know and love.
