    2020 has brought much uncertainty to life, careers, and the future. Now more than ever, DJs have had to adapt and shift to the digital space. Join our panelists as they have an open conversation on the current state of affairs.


Beyond the Music Retreat is an educational conference dedicated to helping DJs take their careers to a higher altitude. It offers a variety of panel discussions with some of the brightest minds in the DJ world.

Why a webinar?
With 2020 being a year of unexpected occurrences, DJs are transitioning the outlook of their careers while placing importance on the realities of finances, health and other imperative issues. While our in-person conference is postponed until 2021, bringing the DJ community together across all experience levels is more crucial than ever. We hope to help foster discussions of action and inspire hope as we all navigate this uncertain and challenging moment in time.

Will there still be a live conference?
The next Beyond The Music Retreat in-person event is currently scheduled for mid-2021. Sign up for notifications.

Vice isn’t your average deejay. Named one of “America’s Best DJs,” the LA native may perform on stage at some of the hottest clubs across the country, performing for sold-out audiences in major cities, but his presence can be felt everywhere – from the center of the crowd to the heart of the music that he creates, blends, and produces. Inspired by his many travels, Vice’s music has the distinct ability to take listeners around the world to places such as Ibiza, Tokyo, London and Hong Kong. Whether it’s a fast-paced EDM song or a relaxing poolside beat, there’s a hint of adventure in every song that takes listeners to the various places that Vice has been to. His list of residences includes Marquee (Las Vegas and New York City) and LIV Miami, in addition to performances at Nocturnal Wonderland, Electric Daisy Carnival and Ultra Miami. Vice collaborates with a wide variety of artists, ranging from A-list to indie. He’s worked with everyone from Rihanna, Jason Derulo, Becky G and Jon Bellion.
