21st and 22nd of February 2015 at the Jaarbeurs Utrecht.
This year Dancefair takes place the 21st and 22nd of February 2015 at the Jaarbeurs Utrecht. You can now browse through the full program at www.dancefair.nl.
For years Dancefair has been the go to educational event for DJs and producers around the world. With over 5000 visitors and more than 200 seminars and workshops to attend, Dancefair is considered the worlds’ biggest educational electronic music event.
One of the prominent names this year is Martin Garrix, who’ll provide a top notch producer workshop. Over 100 other renowned artists like Laidback Luke, Joris Voorn (interviewed by Native Instruments), Oliver Koletzki, Dale Howard, Egbert and Wildstylez also confirmed their attendance for the 4th edition of Dancefair.
“Dancefair awoke out of my passion for electronic music”, says Norman Soares, Founder and organiser of Dancefair. “As always, we are very thankful for the support and interest we get from the 100+ music professionals that are willing to share their knowledge . They recognise the importance of helping out the next generation of production talents and bedroom DJs alike..”
200 Workshops and seminars
In order to stand out in a crowded dance-scene, as a modern talent you have to develop a complete package.
“In 2015, calling your hobby a career, on top of being musically gifted, one has to be far more knowledgable than before. Competition amongst young upcoming artists is fierce, because of the increasingly young ages artists start producing nowadays. Even though these talents carefully follow their idol, a lot of knowledge is still to be learned. For instance the business side of music or how to market yourself are facets young artists are lacking. There are a lot of workshops at Dancefair, presented by music professionals, that address these aspects,” says Norman Soares.
Dancefair also provides numerous workshops on DJ craftsmanship, producer workshops on higher levels for audio engineers, social media masterclasses and entrepreneurship.
Dance music is driven by technological innovation. That is why over 122 brands of all currently relevant software, hardware, and other technological companies will set up shop at Dancefair. Product demonstrations are aimed at both the curious home studio owner looking to take the next step, and the professional who wants to learn more about a specific compressor or equalizer. Some of the renowned brands attending are: Native Instruments, Ableton, Roland, Tip Top Audio, Novation, KRK, Moog, Bitwig, Steinberg, Yamaha, Rob Papen, AIAIAI, Vision Acoustic, Apogee, Arturia, Cakewalk, CME, Crane Song, Event, Focal, Focusrite, Izotope, Korg, RME, Røde, Serato, Studio One, SSL, Waldorf, Stanton, Audient, AVID.
Spinnin’ Records, Cloud9 and Armada’s search for fresh talent
Spinnin’ Records, Armada, Cloud9, Scantraxx, Intacto and Mixmash are some of the biggest imprints in the world. These, and more than 80 other labels, are on the lookout for talented new artists. For these new artists this is a big opportunity; they have a chance to be heard and get valuable feedback on their productions and all they have to do is head to the DemoDrop area of Dancefair.
In 2014 Dancefair hit the island of Ibiza with their successful concept and the organisation is soon to announce new destinations throughout 2015 and 2016.
