Winter Music Conference reveals second wave of interactive programming plus new signed on the spot competition

The 35th Annual Winter Music Conference returns to Miami on March 16-19 to the Faena Forum for one of dance music's biggest industry events. Along with announcing a new wave of interactive programming,  the conference has also opened up submission to Miami's first-ever Signed On The Spot Competition. Participating labels in this can't miss event include Afro Acid, Anjunadeep, Armada, Big Beat, Circus Records, Deadbeats, Dim Mak, Enhanced Music, Erase Records, Mixmash, Nervous, Ovum, Revealed Recordings, Sunclock, and more.

“Before there was Ultra Music Festival, there was The Winter Music Conference, the annual coming together of the dance music tribes. Miami in March is a fundamental place to be from a business perspective and has always given me endless opportunities for discovering new partnerships and talent. WMC brings together the dance music industry and surrounding culture like no other event in America.”- Matt Colon, Director, North America: YM&U Music
