Beatport has announced it will host the first-ever ReConnect Summit in Brooklyn, New York, on September 21st and 22nd. The two-day event will center around electronic music culture — featuring speakers from the business and artistic communities covering creative innovation, technology, Web 3.0, and more. Details of the ReConnect Summit’s evening performers and complete schedule will arrive later this summer.
Tickets are on sale now via Resident Advisor and can be purchased.
The first wave of partnering organizations will include The Art of Areté, Dance Safe, PIXELYNX, and Women in Music, all of which will have the two-day event to feature immersive experiences, networking sessions, and discussions from electronic and dance music industry thought leaders
ReConnect Summit will take place at 74 Wythe, a 15,000-square-foot venue located in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. After attending speaker and networking sessions during the day, conference-goers will be treated to exclusive live performances from the world’s top DJs at night.
ReConnect was launched by Beatport in March of 2020 as the COVID-19 pandemic brought the world to a halt. With the goal of bringing the greater music community, as well as charities together during unprecedented times, ReConnect aimed to connect people while benefiting important causes. Over the course of its existence, Beatport’s ReConnect series has raised more than $800,000 for charities across the globe.
“It is our hope that extending and transforming the ReConnect concept into an annual place to exchange ideas about our business resonates with our community in New York and the U.S. in general,” said Ed Hill, Senior Vice President of Beatport Media Group. “This is a hugely important market for the music that we all love so much.”
