Looking to follow in the footsteps of the Winter Music Conference Miami, (WMC, Amsterdam Dance Event(ADE) and International Music Summit (IMS). TAMC was held in the City of Dreams Casino in Macau. The Event featured a stellar line up of Asian Promoters from Hong Kong, China, Indonesia and Malaysia.such as those from Storm Shanghai, Jamaster A from bouganvilla festival. Spark lam of DJ Mag China, and Womb Tokyo. It also featured talks by Martin Carvell, Director of Dj Mag London and other London office staff. TAMC held debates on the scene in Asia : Japanese delegates from Tokyo Womb and Osaka -represented Japan and Dj Mag Japan attended in the inaugural edition. Post debate as all music conferences should, the partying began amongst in the amazing space Cubic Macau, providing an EDM spectacle par excellence with a stunning vip area, incredible sexy astronaut dancers, dinosaur costumed characters and more smoke and glitter than a Vegas pool party.
The next day the madness continued as post TAMC the Hard Rock Casino hosted a pool party. Held under the shadow of the world's biggest casino, the Venetian, heavy rainintially stopped play but as the rain subsided the throngs of pool partyiers rocked out to the Tenishia, Bassjackers and local heroes "Ghost Hunterz" for the after party Dj mag Japan also popped down the road to Pacha Macau where party rocker Redfoo was taking his LMFAO style show. Pacha Macau has been capturing the hearts of Shenzhen, Hong Kong and Macau clubbers and holiday makers alike with its relentless high quality production looking to bring the spirit of ibiza to the area.
With cheap flights from Tokyo on a host of low-cost airlines, (we travelled with Hong Kong Xpress) and Amazing hotels, Macaus a pretty good place for a party with a surprising number of good EDM talent comin in (Stadium x, Steve Angello, showtek and borgeous are all upcoming in the next month). If you can't wait till the 2017 dition of TAMC it might be worth checking out for a party weekend anyway.
There's little doubt TAMC presented a unique opportunity to meet promoters and talent from across the whole asia region in a way that hasn't been done before and let's hope next year Japan will participate even more!
