​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.
November 5, 2015, 5:40pm

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.
