EDM Conference Debuting in Dubai 2016
The city of gold, Dubai, will be debuting the latest addition to electronic dance music conferences in 2016.
Dubai has made its mark with being very conservative yet one of the riches and most expensive countries in the world. Known for its shopping, clubs and luxury hotels it’s no surprise the western influence of EDM has made its way. Musicians Amr Diab, Diana Haddad, Aerosmith, Santana, Mark Knopfler, Rick Ross, Elton John, Pink, Shakira, Celine Dion, Coldplay, Lady Gaga, Jennifer Lopez, Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez and Roxette have all performed in the city with Kylie Minogue reportedly paid $3.5 million to perform at the opening of the Atlantis resort in November 2008.
Dubai Music Conference (DMC), taking place from 18-19th February 2016 at JW Marriott Marquis Dubai. The two day event is organized by Blue Leaf, a Dubai-based music consultancy and event management company similar to Miami’s Winter Music Conference, Las Vegas’s EDMBiz, or Amsterdam’s ADE.
Blue Leaf “will welcome electronic music’s leading thinkers, artists, global brands and technology pioneers, to engage in discussions on all aspects of the growth of the industry.”
Corey Gibbons, managing director of Blue Leaf, comments: “With the flock of A-list DJs that regularly play the city’s superior clubs and venues, it is no wonder Dubai is steadily making its mark on the global dance music scene. As a leading business and entertainment destination, Dubai presents the perfect location for the region’s first electronic music festival.”
Dubai Music Conference, or DMC as it’s being called for short, “will take place across several venues within the JW Marriott Marquis, including the outside pool, ballrooms and nightclubs.”
The line up is said to be revealed in the upcoming months.
