You’ve heard of Miami’s Winter Music Conference and Detroit Electronic Music Festival. You know them because they’re big events that bring out some of the best electronic music artists, professionals, and enthusiasts on earth. People fly from all over to meet new friends, listen to worship-worthy musicians and, of course, dance. They also started small and local. Every festival has an inaugural year.
West Coast Weekender, a 3-day music conference, will take place for the first time from May 13-15 in San Diego, California, catering to over 3,000 music fans throughout three days. Talent from across the country will participate in daytime panel discussions moderated by DJ Times and Fusicology and play parties that will run from afternoon to early morning.
With a strong focus on local art and industry, West Coast Weekender truly pays homage to the American westside’s rich underground electronic music scene. The opening party will be at Spin Nightclub, a longstanding underground and after hours electronic music venue located in an industrial area just outside of downtown San Diego. The rest of the weekend will take place at the World Beat Center, a multi-cultural arts and music organization, in historic Balboa Park. There will be no shortage of ways to revel in the city’s beautiful landscape with this tight-knit community of music enthusiasts.
Groups from across the western seaboard are coming together to organize the event, with specialities that range from house to drum and bass. Each has contributed to music and culture in their respective neighborhoods and bring a unique flavor to the conference. “We want to bring more exposure to something special that’s been happening on the west coast for a long time and have as many people as possible be a part of it,” say the conference organizers.
Both new and seasoned enthusiasts of underground music, culture, and art will discover something new to celebrate at West Coast Weekender. Join us.
