Armin van Buuren, Will Sparks and more added to EMC 2015

With less than one week to go until the Electronic Music Conference kicks off for 2015, EMC today announced legendary DJ and producer Armin Van Buuren alongside 30+ extra speakers and eight new panels. 
 
Armin joins a massive international representation from artists and industry heads like Carl Cox, Gilles Peterson, AM Only Denise Melanson, Spin Artist Agency Senior Agent Rob Woo and many more artists and power players in the industry. Armin van Buuren will discuss the growing trend of artists founding their own labels at a special panel on day one of the conference. As the head of Armada Music, he’s positioned to comment on the struggles and benefits of mentoring new artists and being your own label head.
 
Other big names in today’s announcement include MaRLo, Chris Emerson/ What So Not, Kid Kenobi, Will Sparks and more.
 
All up, over 180 speakers will appear across 40 panels, sessions and production masterclasses at EMC, with another 25 of Australia’s best new dance acts soundtracking EMCPlay, the biggest party of the year.
