Roni Size, Fatboy Slim, Daft Punk and other heavyweights of the dance music world will descend on Miami Beach this weekend for the Winter Music Conference '98.
The five-day get-together will also boast appearances by Paul Oakenfold, DJ Rap, Doc Martin, Sasha and Natural Born Chillers as DJs, producers, remixers, MCs, and other players in the dance music world meet to address various issues in a series of panel discussions and open forums.
After all the talking is done, there will also be nightly showcases that give nightclubs and new artists a chance to make an impression.
Of course, there will also be a slew of parties as well. Daft Punk and Fatboy Slim will be among the artists hitting the DJ booth during the string of parties that run throughout the conference.
