Global electronic music festival Dancefair is back and bigger and better than ever in 2015. Taking place between 21st and 22nd February, the educational two day event takes place in a huge conference centre just outside Amsterdam at Jaarbeurs in Utrecht, and covers many musical basses as well as offering great ways for keen young DJs and producers to get their own music heard.
As well as plenty of great musical offering and sets and live shows from the world’s best, Dancefair allows you to explore new gear, talk with experts, share stories, get feedback on your music and generally immerse yourself in the world of dance for two whole days. In all there will be 200 workshops, 80 artists and entrepreneurs, 1800sqm of space displaying the latest DJ technology and more than 80 record labels on site.
The Dancefair partners with DGTL and Deep House Amsterdam this year to ensure lots of great coverage before and after the event as well as brands like FutureMusic, Point Blank, KRK Systems, Stanton, Ableton, Interface and many other top industry experts.
The main focus of course will be the large Polar hall where all the action takes place. Techno, EDM, house, harder styles, big room tech and more will all be on offer from the world’s biggest DJs and live acts. Those names will be announced in the coming weeks but rest assured they will be a mouth watering project.
At the end of each party day, networking opportunities will present themselves allowing people to connect with industry insiders, DJs and producers. There will also be lots of seminars and workshops, mastering classes for experts and novices and lots of social media discussions and marketing techniques dissected.
You will also be able to buy specially discounted gear at this event, with brand new lines of kit being unveiled and lots of second hand stuff at great prices. As well as this, there will be a Demo Drop point for all aspiring DJs and producers where they can drop off their latest tunes and connect with the 80+ labels that will be in attendance including already confirmed Mixmash, Intacto, 100%Pure, Area Remote and Remote Area. These experts will then offer feedback and tips on the demos they hear so everyone can learn something new.
