REVOLT officially kicked off the third annual REVOLT Music Conference (RMC) on Thursday, Oct. 13 at the Eden Roc Miami Beach Hotel and will run through Sunday, Oct. 16.
Sean “Diddy” Combs, REVOLT chairman, hosted an opening ceremony to celebrate the weekend-long event featuring an unprecedented lineup of panels and performances.
Miami Beach Mayor, Philip Levine, proclaimed Thursday, October 13, 2016 as ‘Sean “Diddy” Combs Day’ and DJ Khaled was presented with the (major) key to the city of Miami Beach.

The future leaders of Bad Boy Entertainment, Justin Combs (entrepreneur) and Christian Combs (artist) as well as Andre Harrell (REVOLT vice chairman and chair of the REVOLT Music Conference) debuted the second part of the brand’s docu-series “Free Flow: Politickin” where they recently sat down with national lifestyle apparel and footwear retailer, Footaction, to discuss the evolution of the family business, hip-hop, and how their personal style plays a role from the boardroom to the stage.
