Next week, the entire world of dance music converges onto South Beach for the Winter Music Conference (WMC) and Ultra Music Festival.

WMC, the coolest 32 year old you will ever meet, brings together djs, artists, industry people and fans from around the world for four days of networking, panels and parties. Hosted at the Royal Palm South Beach, the daytime events include thought provoking and educational seminars, remixing/production workshops, demo listening sessions, a dj spin-off and a vj challenge. A plethora of parties make up the schedule of The List with the International Dance Music Awards being the crown jewel. Registration for Winter Music Conference is available here.

Ultra Music Festival takes over Bayfront Park for three insane days of the biggest dance music superstars across eight stages.
