New Times Winter Music Conference Guide 2010 in Newsstands Now

​After much blood, sweat, and tears it's finally done and hot off the presses. In newsstands today all over Miami you will find our Winter Music Conference Guide 2010 put together by Miami New Times music editor Arielle Castillo and featuring work by regular Crossfade contributors Esther Park, Sean Levisman, Tracy A. Block, John Hood, Jose Davila, and more. At 40-pages, this year's guide might be our biggest yet.

Too lazy to go out of your house? No worries. The entire guide is available online. Highlights include: a look back at the 25 worst moments in dance music history, a WMC survival guide, dubstep's formal arrival into the mainstream, and the highlight of the week, Ultra Music Festival.

Our WMC coverage doesn't stop there. We'll be on the field all weekend long updating live right here on Crossfade and via Twitter @Crossfade_SFL, so look out for that.
