MEDMA was founded at the University of Michigan in the Fall of 2005. In just a few years we’ve grown from a group of five to hundreds with a growing number of friends and fans who show up to our events every week. Our goal is to spread awareness and enjoyment of electronic dance music, and to achieve that goal socially. Our members are composed of music lovers, producers, DJs, EDM initiates, and people who love to get down and dance.

Here is a brief recap our years:
- Under the new and eager leadership of Nick Danowski, President, and Grant Waddell, Vice President, MEDMA aims to grow larger and encompass a bigger audience. So far, the duo have done this splendidly with the superb help of other Leaders and Core.
- As of early September, MEDMA has already DJ’ed at multiple house and fraternity parties, and went to about half a dozen concerts together. Most notably, a MEDMA Alumni hosted I AM NOT TO BE TRUSTED (II) at Necto, and the show was beyond brilliant.
- MEDMA has many events lined up, and is planning on bringing famous artists to Ann Arbor through a member survey system.
- We are bringing in outstanding equipment and extensive knowledge to our planned DJ & Music Production Workshops.
- We have a limo/bus trip to a concert in October, and are planning more.
- MEDMA heard big names right here in Ann Arbor including Above & Beyond, Juan Atkins, Sultan, and Flying Lotus.
- We hopped in a limo and headed out to the Boom Boom Room in Windsor, ON for Carl Cox, Ferry Corsten, Alex Guadino, Joris Voorn, and Arno Cost.
- We checked out shows in the Detroit-area including Deadmau5 (Fillmore), Chris Lake (Nove), Moby (St. Andrews), Dan Stark (Vain).
- We hosted some incredible nights at Pi Kappa Theta (Pi Kapps), Kappa Sigma, Delta Tau Delta (DTD), Chi Phi, as well as the Yellow Barn for Brewing Hope’s Barnstorm event, and Core-member houses.
- We raised more than $3000 for the American Cancer Society during Relay for Life where we sold glowsticks, song requests, and spun live until Ann Arbor Noise Ordinances beat us out.
