    I love WMCFest! as well as the small conference that Columbus Creative puts on in Columbus , GA!! I also dig Adobe Max – heard HOW was chill, love to try Circles Conference, and Brooklyn Beta, and SXSW to name a few!

    • Go Media

      And we love you, Mike! :) Definitely gotta give a shout out to Columbus Creative, really doing awesome stuff! Adobe Max, Circles, Brooklyn Beta, and SXSW are also some great suggestions. Thanks for sending these our way! :)

    WMC tops my list in the art/design category for sure. I love the sense of community at the event & everyone is so laid back & open. Its very refreshing from some of the larger design gatherings.

    If we are talking festivals outside of the art world, the biggest event I look forward to every year is Lollapalooza. 3 days of great music in the Chicago summer is about the greatest thing every. Plus I live in the city which makes it very easy to get to :)

    • Go Media

      Hey, Jen! :) Thanks for listing WMC as you fav art conference. We love hearing that! Lollapalooza is a great suggestion and Chicago is a great city for a festival especially when you are a local, right! Haha! What bands are looking forward to seeing the most next year?

      • Jen K

        Oh the Lolla crew is evil, they announce the bands sometime in May for the show that fall. Kinda crazy cause I buy my 3 day passes at the early bird special in Feb with no clue who the bands are

  • Justin Mclaughlin

    I haven’t got the chance to attend WMC as of yet. So my favorite would have to be San Diego Comic con.

    • Go Media

      Ooh, awesome suggestion, Justin! :) Did you get to see the Walking Dead peeps at this year’s one?

  • Adrian Lorenzo

    Hope I can be part of the WMC! I’ve been attending the 99% Conference for the last two years and reeeeally enjoyed it… The 99% is a GREAT chance to be with a bunch of people with a wide (and different) approach and that’s why I like to participate but… I’m thinking about a change!

  • Joe Wathen

    My favorite is the WMCFest, I have attended the past two years and end up spending all my money on posters!

    • Go Media

      Hey, Joe! (the Jimi song just started running in my head, haha). That is so great to hear! Jeff would be so stoked about that. Oh and I hear ya on the posters. There are so many awesome designers, it is easy to break the bank with buying all the beautiful artwork. :)

    • Go Media

  • Guest

    Never had the opportunity to go to the WMC fest, but will love to go. One day, for sure ;)
    Talking about festivals… here in Montreal we have a couple, related to music or films. Fantasia (fantastic, sci-fi, horror… movie) is awesome… and the people attending really cool!

    (nice Tee….)

  • Thierry de Nardin

    I never had the opportunity to go to the WMC fest (love the name). Talking about about festivals, here in Montreal we have a couple, including music anf films. My favorites is Fantasia, related to sci-fi, fantastic or horror movie, from Asia but not only. People attending there are really nice.
