The study of electronic music is a perennial endeavor. No matter what calibre of artist you are, there’s always more knowledge to be gained. It’s a life-long learning process: one that benefits the curious and rewards the persistent. Thankfully, conferences like Dancefair in the Netherlands have made it easier than ever to receive professional counsel.
The annual Utrecht event is a haven for electronic music education. Taking place from in the weekend of 17/18 February 2018, Dancefair brings some of the brightest minds in electronic music together for two days of seminars, workshops, and panels. The 2018 edition will reveal its full program around the 21th of December, including 200 different masterclasses, 170 top-notch artists and over 300 dance music brands in attendance.
As opposed to more industry-based conferences, Dancefair focusses on producers DJs, modern musicians and industry professionals. It’s essentially the electronic music conference for electronic musicians. The 2018 edition will see artists like Firebeatz, Dirtcaps, Tony Junior, Lucien Foort and Joran van Pol. With Luca Pretolesi, Brooks, CMC$ and Dannic and more participating, it’s a unique opportunity to learn from some of the brightest minds in the electronic music community.
What makes Dancefair such a special event is the close connection between local heroes and international superstars. With labels such as Armada, Revealed and Spinnin’ hosting their own areas, this is your chance to be discovered. Over 80 labels, covering the wide range of electronic music production, will be available to drop your demo.
