Carl Cox, Armin van Buuren, Richie Hawtin, more locked for Winter Music Conference

DJ Pierre, Irvine Welsh and Laidback Luke are also on the cards... 

Carl Cox, Armin van Buuren and Richie Hawtin are among the names locked-in for this year's Winter Music Conference. 

The Miami institution marks its 34th year in 2019, and will take control of the city's Faena Forum from 25th - 28th March. 

DJ Pierre, Irvine Welsh, Laidback Luke, Erick Morillo, Harry Romero, Junior Sanchez, Nicole Moudaber, and Sander van Doorn have also been confirmed for the event, which is widely recognised among the most important dance gatherings in the world and was bought by Ultra in 2018

Some of the biggest brands in the industry are also involved, with the likes of Dirtybird, Beatport, Spinnin' Records, Discogs and, of course, DJ Mag heading to the Florida city. The first tier of WMC // Industry badges are now sold out, and those interested in securing a place should head to the official website for details. Before you do, though, check out these vintage photos from the conference during the 1990s and early-00s showcasing the hedonistic side to this annual meet.
