The organizers of the UK’s Brighton Music Conference just announced the full lineup of panelists, speakers, and exhibitions scheduled to appear during the inaugural 2014 installment this Spring.
The BMC has its sights set on being one of the most influential conferences in the world of electronic music, and they’ve put their money where their mouths are by pulling together some of the brightest figures in the industry for a powerhouse showcase that focuses equally on business and education.
This year’s conference, which takes place at the famed Brighton Dome on April 11 and 12, will feature speakers as varied as Terry Weerasinghe of Beatport, Mark Williamson of Spotify, Meindert Kennis of Spinnin’ Records, Martin Carvell of DJ Magazine, and LessThan3’s own Ari Evans.
The conference will also host a slew of seminars focused on education, featuring Resident Advisor editor Ryan Keeling, BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix producer Huw Owen, Mixcloud founder Nikhil Shah, and so many more.
Don’t be fooled into thinking that the Brighton Music Conference is just for bigtime movers and shakers in the music industry–organizers are committed to keeping DJs and fans alike engaged in the conversation. According to John “00” Fleming, one of the conference’s head organizers:
“BMC aims to create a genuine business focus that brings both opportunity and networking potential. We are also focused on education. At BMC for under $20, aspiring bedroom DJs or producers can attend the BMC Exhibition which features over 38 seminars, workshops and artists Q&As to give them the knowledge they need to pursue a career in electronic music. There will still be some partying at BMC, but business and education comes first.”
