The 2015 EDMbiz Conference & Expo concluded its second and final day today with more than a thousand attendees. Highlights included:

 

  • Insomniac COO Simon Rust Lamb, moderated a panel on “Dance Music and the Urban Ecosystem” that included a review of the business impact of EDM on local, national and global communities, including the release of new data on the economic impact of Electric Daisy Carnival Las Vegas.
  • Clone.tv, a media company focused on live entertainment streaming, won the first-ever EDMbiz “Startup Contest” during a panel moderated by Insomniac’s Chief Growth Officer and Interim CFO, John Boyle. This follows the Day One announcement that up and coming artists, SHINRA, took top honors in the “A&R/Best Record Contest.”

 

Finally, the “Fourth Annual EDMbiz Artist Panel” featured some of the hottest talent in electronic dance music: 3LAU, Hook N Sling, Krewella, Nicky Romero, Oliver Heldens, Pretty Lights and Z-Trip. EDMbiz Host and Curator, Jason Bentley of KCRW, guided an intimate conversation with the panel, including how innovation has shaped the EDM landscape, the evolving definition of “DJ,” how artists create fresh sounds using live analog and digital technologies, and what’s next for the genre.
