The UBC Electronic Dance Music (EDM) Club is a constituted[1]

student club of the Alma Mater Society of the University of British Columbia. The UBC EDM Club was founded by Adam Kolsrud in 2013. Adam wrote the club constitution, collected signatures from UBC students to demonstrate interest in the club, and gave a presentation to the AMS describing the purposes of the club. A few months later the club was officially constituted by the AMS (Alma Mater Society). In the summer of 2014 a community project with similar goals, The Night Club of UBC (started by Luc Briede-Cooper), merged into the UBC EDM Club to bring together UBC's DJs, producers and avid listeners of electronic music. The UBC EDM Club's office is in room 3305 of the AMS Nest.

Activity

UBC EDM organises hangouts, events and workshops centered around the UBC community. 2016/17 saw DJ Workshops and the addition of Production Workshops. This supports the community of DJs, producers and fans of all electronic music based at UBC. The UBC EDM Club hosts its own events including Project Underground in 2017. They support student based groups by providing affordable lighting equipment, AV services, consultation and providing DJ services from the club roster for their events.
