Voting is now open for The 33rd annual International Dance Music Awards (IDMA)!

By visiting wintermusicconference.com/idma/ the public will be able to participate in the voting process for dance music’s longest running, most inclusive and credible awards program. This year’s nominees were determined by Viberate – the world’s biggest crowdsourced platform for listing and mapping the live music industry – and The IDMA Advisory Board; a panel comprised of major players within the electronic music community including notable artists, managers, agents, publicists and promoters.

The IDMA’s cap off an exciting Winter Music Conference jam packed with exciting keynote speakers and panels comprised of dance music’s top artists and industry luminaries. In addition daytime programming, each Winter Music Conference badge holder will also have access to attend over 20 sanctioned WMC events free of charge. Get your business done by day and blow off steam at night with parties featuring top talent including Danny Tenaglia, Chocolate Puma, Aly & Fila, Anthony Attalla, Steve Lawler, Luciano, EDX, Carl Craig, Stacey Pullen, Matthew Dear + more. The full list of WMC programming and sanctioned events is available by visiting wintermusicconference.com

Adding to the excitement, Winter Music Conference reaches new heights with the addition of the legendary Shaquille O’Neal who takes to the big stage with his managers Joe Silberzweig & Adam Richman for a conversation about his electronic music alter ego DJ Diesel and the evolution of his “Shaq’s Fun House” brand. Shaquille O’Neal is one of the most dominant basketball players in NBA history and is now also one of the greatest entertainers on earth – this conversation is not to be missed!

Winter Music Conference is pleased to announce its newest partners including Virgin Voyages, Absolut Elyx, Lyft, Red Bull, Flow Water, IK Multimedia, Allen & Heath, University of Miami (Frost School of Music), Amped Studio, Shiftpod, VIRPP and recently confirmed artists including Paavo Siljamäki (Above & Beyond), A-Trak, Craze, DJ Tennis and Louie Vega who will be participating at this year’s event.

ABOUT INTERNATIONAL DANCE MUSIC AWARDS
Running concurrently with Winter Music Conference in Miami, FL (March 25-28 in the spectacular Faena District), the IDMAs generate over two million votes annually from music enthusiasts in 209 countries and territories to recognize and honor exceptional achievements in various award categories.

ABOUT WINTER MUSIC CONFERENCE
2019 marks the first fully-programmed WMC since it was announced in March 2018 that the organizers behind Ultra Worldwide, the world’s most successful independent, international music festival brand, had acquired the Winter Music Conference (founded in 1985) and International Dance Music Awards (IDMA) properties. The Ultra Worldwide acquisition aims to restore WMC’s status as the must-attend dance music industry and networking conference in the world. A property unlike any other, WMC’s exclusive hotel partner, The Faena, was named by Conde Nast Traveler as the #1 hotel in Miami Beach for two consecutive years (2017 & 2018) via their prestigious readers poll.
