Winter Music Conference has released the full lineup for its upcoming virtual event, which will take place on the internet this May 20-21.

Keynote speakers include Twitch Cofounder Kevin Lin, Pandora Cofounder Tim Westergren, N.W.A's Arabian Prince, Droplabs CEO Susan Paley, Raised In Space's CEO Zach Katz and a team from Spotify.

Additional speakers include Claude VonStroke, Jazzy Jeff and Junior Sanchez, along with other artists and dance world figures specializing in music, tech, production and more. Panel discussion topics include NFTs, blockchain and rebuilding the live events industry. See the complete lineup below.

The two-day virtual conference will, naturally, also include a virtual afterparty along with a screening of the documentary Larry's Garage, which unpacks the backstory of dance scene legend Larry Levan and his iconic New York nightclub Paradise Garage.

2021 marks the first time that the annual Winter Music Conference will happen virtually. The event, which typically happens every March in Miami in conjunction with Miami Music Week, was canceled in 2020 due to the pandemic.
