Looks like the U.S. is ramping up its efforts to bring some top-notch electronic-music festivals to its coasts, with both the Brooklyn Electronic Music Festival and L.A.’s Convention Festival announcing their 2009 installments’ plans. Convention will take place over September 18 – 20 at multiple L.A. venues, and with folks like Juan Atkins, Wighnomy Brothers, and Echospace set to entertain the crowds, it promises to be quite an inaugural event.
