Celebrity star power and the biggest names in music and entertainment are nothing new for Miami. So it’s not surprising that Diddy would bring his inaugural REVOLT Music Conference to the Fountainbleu Miami Beach (4441 Collins Ave.) on Oct. 16-19. The Conference is a fusion of music, technology, and marketing innovation curated to inspire thought-provoking discussions with influential industry executives. Some of the biggest names in the industry, including Jimmy Iovine, Russell Simmons, Guy Oseary, Bob Pittman, and Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs will lead keynote sessions about navigating and understanding the evolution of the music business.
Whether an industry professional, someone who works for a technology company, or just an ultimate music lover, attendees will walk away with newfound knowledge on how to tap into the power of the music business and learn how to better connect, engage, and develop a relationship with consumers. Over the course of two and a half days, the disruptive format is expected to be a fully immersive experience blending education and entertainment in an intimate setting where influencers and artists are within arms reach. Conference highlights include: a breakfast with Simmons as keynote, Q&A lunch with Combs, and panel sessions for bands and artists, among others. Of course, this is Diddy we’re talking about, and we’re not surprised to see a hot lineup of parties and special events including a Diddy takeover at LIV featuring DJ Khaled, a REVOLT pool party with DJ Funk Flex and DJ Cassidy, intimate cocktail hours and other parties.
It’s estimated that 500 industry executives and 100 students in addition to a remote audience through the recently launched REVOLT TV iOS and iPhone apps will participate. Of course, attendees can also expect artists, including Jhene Aiko, G-Eazy, DJ VICE, YG, DJ Funk Flex, DJ Cassidy and many more performing at intimate showcases.
Confirmed attendees come from companies including, but not limited to: Shazam, Spotify, Beats by Dre, Pandora, Grey Advertising, iHeartMedia (formerly Clear Channel), VEVO, SoundCloud, Sirius XM, Wall Street Journal, Billboard, Translation, AdWeek, PepsiCo, Complex Media, Atlantic Records, Epic Records, Motown Records, Def Jam, BandsinTown, The Fader, Warner/Chappell Publishing, Universal Records, Dancing Astronaut, Glassnote Records, Top Dawg Entertainment, AM Only and many more.
