RIO MUSIC CONFERENCE ANNOUNCES DATES AND PROGRAM FOR 2015 – THE ELECTRONIC MUSIC GATHERING FOR SOUTH AMERICA
The seventh edition will take place from February 4th to February 17th, during Carnival
It’s not only “Samba” that gets the Carnival going in Rio. The seventh edition of Rio Music Conference (RMC) – the electronic music’s largest trade show in South America – will take place from February 4th to February 17th. In the midst of the biggest street party in the world, the event will bring together innumerous artists, producers, journalists and businessmen, besides relevant people from the electronic music scene and the creative industry, both national and international.
The RMC divides its schedule in two: the conference and the festival, featuring the biggest names in the industry. The first part focused on business and the stimulus on market development, which sums up panels, workshops, trade show and the Club Week. The second part is entirely directed to entertainment with Rio Music Carnival, a five days festival with the world’s top headliners. As for the rest of the year, smaller editions with the same features travel around the country, spreading knowledge and fostering the market of national electronic music: the RMC Regional Meetings.
The main conference, with lectures, workshops, speed coaching and business fair will take place at the Pestana Rio Atlântica Hotel, from February 4th to 6th. Club Week will be offering a special attraction on every day of the event, thanks to RMC’s partnership with local establishments, firing up the nightlife in Rio. On the other hand, the traditional RMC festival will be renamed as Rio Music Carnival, featuring national and international headliners at Marina da Glória, from where you can have some of Rio’s best views.
There’s an estimate of 120.000 people participating in the event through its 14 days, including around 500 parties along Club Week, the Rio Music Carnival and the conference. “The RMC works as a place to exchange information and knowledge of those involved in the music industry and live entertainment. Furthermore it stimulates new deals and networking as a way of boosting even more the electronic music industry in Brazil”, explains Claudio da Rocha Miranda Filho, RMC’s co-founder and director.
