Rapino Among EDMbiz Speakers

Promoter Insomniac Events has announced speakers and panelists for its inaugural EDMbiz conference, which will precede this year’s Electric Daisy Carnival in Las Vegas June 8-10.

Industry vets to appear at the electronic-themed event include Live Nation’s Michael Rapino, Lollapalooza founder Perry Farrell, William Morris Endeavor’s Marc Geiger, Goldenvoice’s Skip Paige, Mike McGinley of CitizenNet, AM Only’s Paul Morris, Joel Zimmerman of WME and Andrew Dreskin of Ticketfly.

The conference, slated at The Cosmopolitan for June 5-7, will also feature appearances by Kaskade and members of Swedish House Mafia.

A “discovery project” component of EDMbiz will allow fledgling DJs to submit 30-minute mixes to compete for a chance to perform at EDC and score complimentary registration to the conference. More information is available at edmbiz.com.
