This weekend also provided a great space for tech as the panels discussed up-and-coming apps that are catering to making sure content creators and artists reach their full audience and can profit off of their work with full control. Apps like FanBase, which is created to connect artists directly to their fans, were a guest for Waffles weekend. Also, Music360 talked about how it’s changing the game by combining the likes of Instagram and Spotify for a bigger and better platform for everyone. Another app that’s on its way back is Music Box, and they are hoping to bridge the gap between artists and their international fans by creating a text message system that helps to translate into any language.
The highlight of the weekend, however was Waffle's Brunch and Wine event in partnership with HER Wine. The Dj premiered his new waffle mix, which he is ready to kick things up a notch. The mix includes three different flavors of waffles, such as peach and "chicken and waffles," as well as a handcrafted hennesy-infused syrup. While DJ Waffles has been a premier DJ for years, his waffle mix is his new adventure which is set to take off.
