EDM in Pop Culture: The Foundation of a Global Movement

EDM has taken center stage. How is the scene represented in the mainstream media? How has social media supported the growth of EDM? Has big business changed the spirit of the movement? What are the major story lines for the Summer of 2014? In a scene dominated by youth, how much of the history of the culture is represented? Is there a conscious effort to build a legacy for this movement?
