In just a few weeks Miami is going to be banging to the sound of some of the world’s best Electronic Dance Music at the Miami Music Week from March 15-20, 2016. As thousands of EDM enthusiasts, including artists, DJs, performers and fans flood into Miami, you can bet it’s going to be loud, crowded, neon and positively electric.
Miami is a popular destination for its great weather and parties all year round; and when the music permeates the warm ocean air, it’s even better. You could choose to fly in on your own private jet from Exclusive Charter Service and kick off the party even before you reach it.
As far as posh hotels go, you can choose to stay at The Setai, which is the epitome of the wealthy, who love electronic dance music as well. The Delano is another option and is practically synonymous with A-list celebrities. Dream South Beach is for the younger, hip crowd that wants to take the party back to its room – and in this case to the rooftop pool at midnight!
On March 15, you can catch Laidback Luke, Mindshake Showcase & Miami Massive – all at Miami Beach. Tickets are going for $20-40 a pop and are available online. On March 16 you can catch sounds with Bob Moses, Detroit Love, Revealed, Acid Pauli, Spinning Session and Dusky. You can also board the Biscayne Lady for Sound I Waves with Lee Burridge and HOJ. Above and Beyond at the RC Cola Plant on March 17 should be the most sought after trance act and certainly unforgettable.
Then, there’s the Ultra Music Festival that spans the last three days of the Miami Music Week and is located around the Bayfront Park area in downtown Miami. There’s a main stage and five additional stages where the shows are held throughout the day and well into the night. The music is loud and you will need earplugs if you’re close to the stage. Regardless of wherever you are standing in downtown Miami, the music will fill the air. 300,000 people in an enhanced and euphoric state of mind are a powerful experience. Seeing it for 12 hours every day, three days in a row is undefinable. With a lineup that includes the likes of Afrojack, Armin van Buuren, Avicii, Carl Cox, David Guetta, Dubfire, Eric Prydz, Hardwell, Jamie Jones, Kaskade and yet to be announced parties, it’s best to have a game plan beforehand about where you’re planning to rave.
Also, keep an eye (or ear) out for the 50 ton, 20 meter tall structure known as the Arcadia Spider as it makes its debut as the Resistance stage this year. It’s made of fully recycled material, and features a mind-boggling production one must witness in person to properly appreciate. The best techno DJ’s in the world will grace the decks.
And fret not. Even if you cannot get your hands on tickets to the festival, the after parties – club nights, pool parties, beach parties at Ultra Week are worth the expensive drinks, judgmental bouncers and crazy Uber surges. Make sure you download the Miami Music Week 2016 Mobile App to stay updated.
The thing to really remember is that the Miami Music Week attracts massive crowds that could act as a damper to your fun. So, the best way to beat the crowds is flying in on your own Exclusive Charter Service, stay in downtown Miami (NOT South Beach), get the VIP tickets for the festival and walk back at the end of the evening without worrying about transport. Are you ready to join the greatest migration of music lovers?
