It’s been fascinating to see the music industry confront the challenges COVID-19 has created. We’ve been learning from the pros in webinars and finding ways to continue music education remotely with online software. We’ve got drive-in festivals to look forward to and Minecraft festivals, too, while live-streamed gigs skyrocket in popularity. Facebook has even started an online ticketing plan for upcoming events. Dancefair’s free virtual music conference is the next one to add to the ever-growing list of web-based experiences, opening its virtual doors to an expected 100,000 music production enthusiasts.
Dancefair will be the world’s biggest free online music conference, with over 200 program parts and 16 virtual rooms. The event will take place over the 5 and 6 September 2020, providing information non-stop for 48 hours. 16 virtual rooms will be accessible, packed with masterclasses, workshops, panels and a virtual expo floor. There will also be virtual product demonstrations, one-to-one sessions and chat rooms for peer discussion.
Over the last nine years, Dancefair has grown to become the go-to gathering for 7,000 music makers and music professionals. 500 artists like Hardwell, Martin Garrix, Pan-Pot, DJ Sneak, Armin van Buuren, Wildstylez, Kevin Saunderson and Joris Voorn shared their musical knowledge at previous editions of the Dutch conference venue.
Dancefair founder Norman Soares says: “We found a way to keep everyone safe and to still deliver the connection and celebration that have brought so many of you to the event each year. We have decided to hold Dancefair virtually and we’ll release details about what that will look like over the next month.”
