International Music Summit recap: Pete Tong, Bill Werde, Diplo, Skrillex & more
The first IMS Engage is over and out.

The event was hosted by the partners W Hotels Worldwide in the Hollywood hotel. Quite a prominent line-up of speakers came to speak their minds, among them Swedish House Mafia manager Amy Thomson, SFX’s Shelly Finkel, and Billboard’s editorial director Bill Werde and artists such as Diplo, Pete Tong, and Skrillex. They touched on topics that have caused controversy in the recent history ranging from whether U.S is having a negative effect on EDM, and the problem with social media as a promotional and credible tool.
