After getting a tip on the new Revolt Film Festival that would be added to the Revolt Music Conference, I was then put on Revolt coverage for the newspaper I freelance for, The Miami Times. However, I truly want to learn if this conference was all hype or really worth it to attend.

I was excited to attend the conference because of it’s success from it’s first year, I didn’t think I could gain much from the experience if I wasn’t a new rapper trying to push a mix tape. I was wrong to assume and glad I was because I met so many cool people and I’ve learned so much that I plan to attend next year. Below is why you should too.

After getting a tip on the new Revolt Film Festival that would be added to the Revolt Music Conference, I was then put on Revolt coverage for the newspaper I freelance for, The Miami Times. However, I truly want to learn if this conference was all hype or really worth it to attend.

I was excited to attend the conference because of it’s success from it’s first year, however, I didn’t think I could gain much from the experience. Boy was I wrong and glad I was. I met so many cool people and I’ve learned so much that I plan to attend next year. Below is why you should too

1. The Panel Disscussions are Awesome and Insightful! Honestly, how many opportunies wI’ll you have to attend a Sean “Diddy” Combs Q&A session, Scooter Braun being interviewed by Andre Harrel, All of the top music managers on one stage giving career advice and David Banner dropping serious knowledge on rap and political engagement? Nowhere that I know. In addition to the people I just mentioned, there were a slew of great panel dissussions that attenedees had the pleasure to attend. From an all Women in Entertainment panel to a stary up tevh pitch competion; there’s no reason to leave RMC not having a better understanding of how the music industry works and how you can grow as an artists or business person.

2. The concerts were super dope! From Thursday to Saturday attendees had a chance to see new and seasoned artisst perform. There were nearly a dozen performances over the weekend including Seven Streeter, Jidena, Rae Shremud*, Lil Wayne and of course Diddy and the family. The highlight was the Diddy and the family performance, especially seeing the Queen B herself, Lil Kim, come on stage and rip it. The conference allows you to learn much and party hard. The combination speaks to Diddy and the Revolt staff’s genius. You can literally walk out of a panel discussion that changed your perspective on the industry then see a killer should minutes later.

3. The networking is priceless! You’ll meet so many good contacts. There are countless opportunities to rub shoulders with top music executives, music producers, media professions and emerging artists.

4. Location! South Beach has beaches, sun and beautiful people– need we say more?!

5. Of Course Diddy! Sean “P Diddy” Combs started the Revolt TV network and the conference with it’s name’s sake. The business mogul is very much a part of the conference and gives attendees plenty of times to see him and hear him share his wisdom from being in the industry. And there’s also many opportunities to party with Mr. Combs, well because you can’t come to Miami Beach and not party.

The conference was a worthwhile experience that I’d recommend to anyone interested in doing anything in the entertainment industry. From visual and performing artists, management, fashion designers, journalists, bloggers, web designers and computer coders; if anything you can do intersects with the enter industry in any way then you should be at the conference next year. You’ll thank me later.
