AEMCON Organizers Create 'Virtual Electronic Music Summit'

The organizers of the annual Alberta Electronic Music Conference have announced the creation of the Virtual Electronic Music Summit.

Taking place from June 4-7, 2020, the goal of the free four-day virtual conference is to connect, educate, and inspire electronic music industry professionals, emerging artists, brands, and fans who have been affected by COVID-19. It will involve a series of online workshops, panel discussions, Q&As, and keynote speakers.

“We hope that this event will involve you in a variety of industry-focused conversations, empower your careers, and ultimately give you a bit of hope for the future. With the cascading announcements of festival cancellations, we hope this event can act as a lift for our community,” organizers say. “In a time where physical proximity is impossible, conversation and sharing knowledge are vital for our industry’s survival. We need resilience, innovation, and creativity to thrive in a post COVID-19 world.”
