EDMbiz announces panel line-up

Las Vegas’ electronic music conference to return this month

  • 2 June 2015

EDMbiz, the Insomniac-run electronic music conference held annually in Las Vegas, is set to return on June 16-18, with notable industry heads such as Paul Morris (AM Only), Pasquale Rotella (Insomniac), Blaise DeAngelo (OWSLA) all descending on Sin City for three days of panels.

The conference, which is now in its fourth year, brings together some of the biggest figures behind the scenes in American dance music, and like the Winter Music Conference in Miami it leads neatly into an EDM rave of enormous proportions: EDC Las Vegas.

EDMbiz will be held at The Cosmopolitan Hotel, and you can register for tickets here.
