So by know everyone must have heard about the WMC in Miami and the ADE in Amsterdam right?
Well here in Rio we have our own Music conference called The Rio Music Conference!!
People from different countries come to Rio to go to workshops, listen to guest speakers and learn about music. And to top this off there are parties almost every night of the conference. Most of the people that visit the conference are from South America but lots of people come from America and Europe to visit.
The conference itself is held in a perfect location at the bay of Gloria which is a great central point and easily accessible. Its separated into day time for the conference and then in the night the DJ’s play over two main arenas and clubbers can walk freely between the two while buying drinks, chilling out in the great chill out spaces or even going to eat at a posh restaurant. This event certainly caters for the VIP crowd.
The conference and all the other events ran for 2 weeks this year. So we can easily say this is a large scale event.
This year they also set up the RMC club which was in a trendy smaller club in Ipanema. Here they held the pre parties and after parties for the conference.
What is totally crazy is that the RMC is on the same time as the Rio carnival. Imagine coming to Rio and hitting both places! You can party till you drop and enjoy the fabulous Rio summer while hitting some of the most famous beaches in the world.
Before the main event they make many regional visits to other cities to promote the conference. The last conference in February 2012 was a huge success. With artists such us Sven Vath, Loco Dice, Luciano, Gui Boratto, Lee Foss, Jamie Jones, Solomun to name a few.
Brands, labels, clubs and agencies. All kinds of people related to the electronic scene visit such as Djs, Vjs, Promoters and Club owners making this one of the best events not only to interact and network but also to party.
Here you’ve got dOp performing live in the event.
