At the heart of WMW is a passion-fueled movement with the focus of connecting creative individuals and changing attitudes toward the progressing music industry.

Another highly anticipated addition to WMW is new pillar, Wired Black , which sheds light on the underground music scene to showcase an alternative side to electronic music. Leading this pillar will be the opening keynote, Evolving As An Asian DJ Into The International Circuit , delivered by Thai DJ, Nakadia , through her personal career journey in successfully breaking through to the Western market. Another highlight in this pillar will be the panel, The Evolution Of The Revolution , where four prominent movers and shakers of the nightlife and entertainment industry in Asia, including the likes of Paul Hugo (Country Director of Hakkasan Group Indonesia) , who will discuss the evolution of the clubbing and rave culture in Asia over the last 20 years and how it has affected the industry in general.
