The Event:

The Northwest House Music Conference is a week long event located in the beautiful city of Portland Oregon. The conference features shows hosted by labels from around the world that showcase their domestic and international
artists. Events will occur at night in various clubs that are all within walking distance of eachother, during the day at parks and outdoor venues and late night at after hours locations. In addition to featuring performances from some of the most respected names in the industry, many of these artists will also be hosting work shops and panels on everything from music production to dancing.

The Music:
This event is about not just giving people the chance to see many of the finest artists in scene, but also about giving them the opportunity to learn more about the art of House music, and the culture surrounding it. We want to give people a chance to meet the individuals who dedicate their lives to a music scene that at is all about creating a strong community of people. House is about a music and culture that defies stereotypes and is open to anyone who just wants a place to let loose and dance. This event truly is about spreading that vibe from the underground to the masses and pushing dance music culture forward. We are coming to together to have a good time, but we will also be presenting a much needed opportunity for people to learn how this music is created, who creates it, what tools they use and what really drives them to put their lives into this music scene.

The Workshops and Panels:
Learn music production techniques from some of the best artists in the industry. See live demonstrations of hardware and how it is integrated into the production of music. Pick up some new moves with renouned dance instructors, and get a rare chance to hear their perspective on the music and the scene. Get inside info on starting your own label and successfully marketing it. Sit in on discussion panels of everyone from the producers to label reps and club owners, listen to their insight on the scene and ask questions of those most involved in keeping house music alive and well. These reprsent only a few of the many opportunities we will be presenting for people to not just have a good a time for the week, but also learn more about the music, culture and people behind the scenes.

The City:
Portland Oregon is one of the most up and coming cities in the country. With a diverse art and music scene that defies trends and strives to break new ground and a food scene that is now at the forefront of the US, Portland is a travel destination that everyone should be moving to the top of their list. For all you beer fans, the area features the largest collection of microbrewers in the country. If you prefer wine, then you can find some of the best wineries outside of Napa valley all situated conveniently close the city. In addition to our great urban music festival, Oregon offers a wide array of fantastic outdoor activities to take part in during this time of the summer. There is endless hiking to be done both outside the city as well as within it in several expansive parks. The coast is a short drive away as are the mountains, and a lake or river to swim in is never far away. The best part is that Portland is one of the most affordable cities in the country to visit and enjoy all of these attractions, so getting the full Northwest experience is well within the reach of the average pocket book.
