Winter Music Conference, Miami Music Week, and Ultra Music Festival are all over.
But this is Miami. We don't just part one week out of the year. We keep the beat alive all year long! Some of the DJs can't stand to leave, and can you blame them? We've got the sexiest floors, the most lavish VIPs, and the craziest fans.
From minimal to big room, electro to techno, why not check out some of these great parties on South Beach and convince the DJs to stay a while longer?
