"Winter Music Conference (WMC) opened its 2012 season in South Florida today with the announcement of the Winter Music Conference 2012 dates. This will be the 27th annual program for what is largely regarded as the pre-eminent platform on the global music industry calendar for launching new music, technology and trends. Winter Music Conference Week 2012 happens March 16 – 25, 2012 in Miami Beach, Florida.
For 2012, WMC plans to further enhance the WMC experience by delivering ten non-stop days of music programming in Miami Beach and Miami. This expansion will wrap the program week with two full weekends of parties and events. WMC Co-founder, Bill Kelly, explains, "Expanding the WMC dates was an easy decision given the high demand of artists, businesses and industry delegates. Miami Beach and the greater Miami area boast some of the most celebrated event and club venues as well as the hotels and resorts that comprise South Beach's famed Art Deco District. Hotels, restaurants, cafes, shops and every sort of possible entertainment venue are filled to capacity during WMC Week to the point where five days just wasn't enough."
New for 2012, WMC will be unveiling correlated segments of its industry program dedicated to music and fashion on its opening weekend and indie rock meets electronica programming under the WMC Rocks header on the closing weekend, in addition to its standard programming and events. More details will be announced over the coming weeks."
House is definitely going mainstream, anybody hear about Swedish House Mafia coming to MSG in December?
While the rest of the world is crying over Ultra crashing an ENTIRE SERVER FARM, we here at the UMF blog totally didn't get early bird tix, we went to the checkout no fewer than five times, only to have it epically crash and burn at the credit card checkout, while listening to our favorite teaser clip for this year.
Thanks UMF FB fan page, for killing my dreams of an early bird ticket
We understand that many of you are frustrated, but just so you know this on sale was only announced to our fans through Email, and our Social Networks. There was no advertising of any kind. We sold thousands and thousands of early birds. The demand for ULTRA 2012 tickets literally took down an entire server farm. This year will most definitely be the most amazing ULTRA Experience that anyone could ask for. Get Ready! Miami Music Week will be here sooner than you think :)
