This year marks the 30th consecutive year of the Winter Music Conference on Miami Beach. On March 24-28, thousands of people will flock to Deauville Beach Resort to experience this one of a kind event. This event, established in 1985 brings people from over 70 countries and grabs the attention of billions of viewers worldwide. With over 400 events, this conference is sure to be the highlight of every ravers winter. Last years statistics show that the predominant age of attendees were ranging from 22-30, that’s 56%. With them making under $35 000 yearly and 39% having undergraduate degrees, these stats show that it is the young people of today, the young adults who are molding our music into what it is today. For where would our DJs be without their loyal and loving fans? The IDMAs bring our favourites together and show them just how much love we have for them, therefore driving them to continue their journeys in making the music that brings all of us EDM lovers together, as one big family.
