In just about a week, Miami will be transformed overnight into the only place worth being for true EDM fans. We'll be overrun with wide-eyed travelers seeking beats, bass, and some girl named Molly, who is apparently friends with everyone.
But even as true insanity is unleashed all over town, some things will remain consistent, like LIV being one of the premier destinations for uhntz-uhntz with a side of class.
And of course, it's taking advantage of all the superstar DJs who'll be in town for Winter Music Conference/Miami Music Week, giving them the chance to light up the slick dancefloor and pop them bottles.

Damn, that ish is stacked. Lots of groovy house in all kinds of varieties. Alesso and Steve Angello are bringing the giant builds and angellic drops. Benny Benassi and Laidback Luke are sure to kick things up with massive energy and some well-timed hardness.
Dirty South is coming all the way from Australia to turn your expectations upside-down, and Kaskade will surely provide the dreamiest soundtrack to your whole WMC/MMW experience. Erick Morillo is a legend in the game, so he's got years of experience and killer tracks to rely on, although he's not one to leave the fresh shit at home.
And whoa, that Size Matters Showcase on the Ocean Lawn looks pretty impressive. A lot of hot talent being represented there from the Swedish House Mafia man Angello's label.
Now the real problem of picking and choosing begins.
