The Revolt Music Conference returns to Miami at the Eden Roc Hotel on October 12-15, 2017.
I have been fortunate and blessed enough to cover this conference every single year since the inaugural in 2014 - and through just being there, even as press, you gain so many connections - meet people with much more knowledge and get to exchange ideas and experience with people that are in or interested in the music industry.
This year, Revolt is back, and honoring Queen Latifah with the Jimmy Iovine award!
See the trailer, below!
This is an excerpt from the Revolt.TV website about the conference:
Andre Harrell, REVOLT Vice Chairman and Chair of the REVOLT Music Conference, said:
"Queen Latifah is a rare talent and one of the most successful artists of all time, flourishing as a rap artist, movie star, talk show host and more. After watching her, for over two decades, transform into one of the biggest stars in Hollywood, we are proud to present Queen Latifah with the REVOLT Icon Award!"
(Previous award recipients include Nas, Antonio "L.A." Reid, and Jimmy Iovine.)
Latifah added, "I am so honored to receive the REVOLT Icon Award. I am gearing up for a great time in Miami!"
French Montana and King Combs will officially kick off this year's RMC in style on Thursday, October 12. On Friday, October 13, 2 Chainz will headline the exclusive Yacht Party aboard the 220 ft. SeaFair Miami. And Ms. Lauryn Hill, SZA, and Daniel Caesar will perform at The Gala on Saturday, October 14.
