​Here's the Lineup for our BEMF Round-Table Sessions

Shawn Rudiman, Lauren Flax, Nick Catchdubs, and Kevin Aviance are on the bill for this Saturday's panels at the VICE HQ.

The Brooklyn Electronic Music Fest goes down this weekend, and THUMP is involved in a big way. In addition to our show with Floating Points, we also curated Saturday's round-table discussions, which go down at the VICE headquarters in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. They kick off at 4 PM at the VICE office lobby in Williamsburg, with a session called Future-Proofing Tomorrow's Technology, a celebration of today's timeless gear and tomorrow's classics that we've organized with the help of the lovely folks over at Novation Music. Then it's The Invisible Woman: Gender Equality in Dance Music (a subject we at THUMP have spent plenty of time covering), followed by What the Streaming Wars Mean for the Future of Music, and at 7 PM, a community roundtable on New York City Vogue and Ballroom Culture.

Check out the full details of panel topics, speakers, and schedule at our Facebook event. Email us at thump-media@vice.com to RSVP.
