It’s been a while…time flies when you are working hard. Just a few weeks ago we successfully launched Tonight app — the only event discovery app in the world that matches the events to your precise music taste.

Forget about endless scrolling to see where to go this weekend. It seems that we like a good challenge so we picked one of the toughest markets to start — Slovenia. And to make it even more challenging we started the campaign in December and find a way to shine among all the biggest players on the market. But what happened after blew our minds.

We got a call from Ultra Miami

2019 started out great — we partnered with the biggest electronic conference in the US — Winter Music Conference which is part of Ultra Miami. WMC is set to kick off on 25th to 28th March and it will be filled with the most influential industry leaders alongside with some of the biggest stars such as Armin van Buuren, Laidback Luke, Nicole Moudaber and Richie Hawtin.

The revelation of music trends of 2019 is coming

With Hundreds of thousands of people migrating down to South Beach for Ultra Miami and WMC, this will be amazing opportunity for Viberate to not only reveal all the predictions for the electronic music in an exclusive panel about Data Solutions, but also talk about the future of decentralized transactions with our advisor and Bitcoin Pioneer Charlie Shrem on the Crypto and Blockchain panel.

The big announcement

One of the most important parts of the Winter Music Conference is the International Dance Music Awards (IDMA) which is the longest running dance music award ceremony (32 years) in history. And this year awards will be powered by Viberate. We were able to populate the IDMA artist-specific categories and present a set of nominees based on true artist popularity. Our music science team worked hard for weeks to find the best fit for every subgenre there is in electronic music. To make sure, every single nominee deserves to be there, they included a specific algorithm to create the perfect list of the artists that made the biggest impact in 2018. And we got to say it is an incredible honor to be invited to help out with such an important part as picking out the nominees.

For all those who can not attend IDMAs but would love to read about trends and breakthroughs on the music scene, there will be an extensive music analysis published in Miami Music Week Magazine.
