Miami Music Week

Music Loves Fashion Starts Today With Avicii, Tomorrow Skrillex

Music Loves Fashion has been putting on events that combine music (duh!), fashion (duh!), beautiful people, celebrities, and great locations near Los Angeles and Montreal for a while now. It's best known events are the ones at the Riviera Hotel in Palm Springs, California, which coincide with Coachella.

Now the party is headed to Miami -- South Beach, to be exact -- for the inaugural Music Loves Fashion event at the Raleigh Hotel. And yes, it's totally worth checking out thanks to (count 'em!) four days of programming which will see the likes of Avicii, Skrillex, Funkagenda, David Tort, Zedd, Dillion Francis, and more.

But that's not all, there are also in-depth panel discussions to be had. The 1Direction Producer Symposium is described as a "motivational experience for producers and songwriters who are looking to take their careers to the next level and learn from the best in the business." The panels are presented by Grammy-award winning producer Matthew "Boi-1da" Samuels and will take place over the course of two days (Thursday, March 22 and Friday, March 23).

But the event the probably intrigues us the most is Saturday's UNANNOUNCED event. (Yes, they are actually calling that.) Organizers promise a world-renowned DJ, but the kicker is you won't know who until the doors open the day of the event. We like the ballsiness of it -- it's like gambling with your party time -- but wonder if it's just because they haven't been able to book anyone yet.

And no this doesn't come free. A two-day symposium pass is $250. General admission ticket prices vary by event and can be purchased through VIP packages range from $2,000 to $20,000 depending on availability for each event.

There is also a $800 VIP pass that grants you three-day access (March 21-23) along with open bar privileges.
