Yesterday, REVOLT, the #1 name in music, hosted the first day of programming for the third annual 2016 REVOLT Music Conference (RMC) at the Eden Roc Miami Beach Hotel. Established as a must-attend event in the industry, RMC provides attendees with the opportunity to personally interact with leaders from both the music and technology industries during interactive panels, performances, exclusive networking events, pitch sessions, poolside parties, music experiences, and more. The action-packed roster of events continues through today, Saturday, October 15.
To close out the first full day of RMC programming at Eden Roc Miami Beach Hotel, REVOLT hosted the exclusive Apple Music Yacht Party which featured special performances from DJ Khaled and friends — including Nas, Ja Rule, Jadakiss, Trina, Dave East, and Kent Jones all aboard the SeaFair mega yacht.
Many of the industry’s top names in entertainment took the stage at RMC on Friday, including keynote speaker Julie Greenwald (Chairman and COO of Atlantic Records), panelists Kenny Burns (SVP of Marketing at Combs Enterprises), Mathew Knowles (CEO of Music World Entertainment), Tahiry (Social Media Maven & Entrepreneur), Cardi B (Artist & Cast of Love & Hip Hop New York), Lenny S (SVP, A&R, Artist Management at Roc Nation), and Shawn Barron (VP of Urban A&R at Atlantic Records).
Additional highlights included breakout session Publishers & PROS (Performing Rights Organization), Breakfast Club LIVE hosted by DJ Envy and Angela Yee, and the #AskKhaled Q&A with DJ Khaled, which followed the successful #AskDiddy panel hosted by Sean “Diddy” Combs at the first and second annual RMC.
The pool at the Eden Roc Miami Beach was live all day with performances from Lajan Slim, Ayo Jay, Jahkoy, Trap Beckham, Prospectt, CymcoLé, 99 JAMZ (Felisha Monet, EFeezy, DJ Hercules), and DJ Hannah Rad.
Later in the evening, Jeezy, DJ Damage, and DJ Hannah Rad hosted the live nominations announcement for the 5th Annual Global Spin Awards. Zoey Dollaz and Dave East performed at the ceremony honoring the top DJs in the music and entertainment industries. The 5th Annual Global Spin Awards will air on REVOLT TV in 2017.
