Joining the discussion will be Secret Garden Party's Freddie Fellowes, Jon Drape of Broadwick Live and artist B.Traits (Artist, Canada).

The How Workplace By Facebook Transforms Communication session, meanwhile, will provide a case study into contemporary workflow management from the viewpoints of Elrow president Vicenc Marti and Workplace By Facebook director Julien Lesaicherre. House music legend Todd "The God" Terry will also give a Keynote Interview about his life and career in dance music.

"Of equal importance to us is education and we are delighted to offer our delegates the opportunity to learn and broaden their knowledge with workshops led by our partners Berklee College of Music, Point Blank Music School and Toolroom Academy.”
