NW House Music
A Week of Electronic Music
From July 29 to August 3, Portland will be the home of the Northwest House Music Conference. Half conference—featuring educational workshops and panels—and half performance—featuring performers from near and far—the week-long fest brings together the house music community to learn and connect with one another while dancing away the night.
Who creates house music, how they do it and what tools they use from some of the top artists in the industry. From production techniques to live demos to creating a label and promoting it, find out what drives these performers and professionals during a series of discussion panels and educational workshops, including dance lessons and live music production tips.
