Beatport Announces First-Ever “ReConnect” Electronic Music Summit In New York City
Beatport has announced its first-ever "ReConnect Summit," a two-day event that will examine electronic music's intersection with technology, cryptocurrency, wellness and more.
The inaugural conference will take place on September 21st and 22nd at 74 Wythe, a 15,000-square foot venue located in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. The summit will feature think tanks and discussions rooted in a number of timely topics, such as dance music culture and creative innovation.
Partners include Audius, the blockchain-powered audio platform; PIXELYNX, an innovative company founded by deadmau5 and Richie Hawtin developing music experiences in the metaverse; and Women in Music, a nonprofit committed to advancing equality for women, among others.
"It is our hope that extending and transforming the ReConnect concept into an annual place to exchange ideas about our business, resonates with our community in New York and the U.S. in general," said Ed Hill, Senior Vice President of Beatport Media Group, in a statement. “This is a hugely important market for the music that we all love so much."
