The 8th annual Power Summit (formerly known as the Mixshow Power
Summit) will take place this year in Our Lucaya, Bahamas, according to The RPM
Group, the company that hosts the event.
Held from September 28th through October 1st – this year’s conference
hopes to provide opportunities for individuals to reach some of the most influential
leaders in music and entertainment.
“The Power Summit provides a rare opportunity to reach
the most influential trendsetters in entertainment," RPM founder and President
Rene McLean said.
Through the years, the summit’s focus has always been the importance
of the DJ, something McLean set out to accomplish when the event first was created.
"Eight years ago, we created this conference to recognize
DJ’s for their important role in Hip-Hop’s surge from the streets to the forefront
of popular culture and trends," McLean added. "I wanted to ensure
that the DJ’s got proper credit for their influence, because they are the driving
force of the Hip-Hop community."
This years Power Summit will be full of industry notables and
will feature panel discussions and events attended by some of the biggest names
in the game.
Some of last years guests included Snoop Dogg, Game, Kanye West,
Lil’ Jon, Talib Kweli, Mobb Deep, Keisha Cole and many others.
Event highlights will include the Music Showcase, a $50,000
MC Battle, a $50,000 producer battle, a Gaming Zone, a Basketball Tournament
and the Award Ceremony.
