EDM Power Players 2014: Amy Thomson, Founder of ATM Artists Management

As manager of Swedish House Mafia, Thomson helped legitimize EDM's touring viability in the United States with her landmark booking of Madison Square Garden in December 2011 - and rewrite the artist playbook in the process, refusing to release a proper Swedish House Mafia album aside from the 2012 farewell compilation "Until One." For her next act, Thomson, 39, is expanding her empire with clubs like Light in Las Vegas, and embracing the dreaded "A" word with highly anticipated albums from Axwell & Ingrosso and fellow Swede DJ Alesso later in 2014.

Number: Swedish House Mafia sold 13,000 tickets in nine minutes to its Madison Square Garden show.
