Winter Music Conference Dates Announced


Everyone rejoice! The loud continuous thump of the bass all over Miami is only a few months away. Yes, every March the dance music community congregates in Miami for Winter Music Conference, bringing with it superstar DJs and parties galore. But it's easy to forget that despite all the debauchery an actual conference with workshops, seminars and discussion panels goes on.

So if you are planning to attend the 2009 edition, this year's conference runs from March 24-28 returning once again to the Miami Beach Resort & Spa. Early-bird registration is $225 and ends November 12; after that the price goes up gradually until Conference. So get on it!
