Not able to attend this year? Take the advice of Guns N Roses and “don’t cry tonight.” You don’t have to be like Avicii and ask us to “wake you when its over.” Instead, join the party by checking out our session landing pages. That’s right, you can groove with us no matter where you are...it’s how we roll.
