With the kickoff of Winter Music Conference and Miami Music Week just a little over seven days away, our anxiety has reached an all-time high. Only Election Day voting lines throughout South Florida, it seems, are longer than our WMC Party Guides, and that's becoming increasingly difficult to handle.
Still, y'all were begging to know what's going down at Bamboo Miami Beach between Friday, March 15, and Sunday, March 24. And we couldn't take it anymore.
Crossfade is 'bout the people. And when the people ask for another party guide, you're damned right we give the people another party guide.
So check out Bamboo's complete Winter Music Conference and Miami Music Week lineup after the cut.
Friday, March 15
Alex Gaudino, Jason Rooney, Chicco Secci, Simon De Jano, and Bottai

Paul Oakenfold and Friends
What's better than spending a night alone with Oakie during WMC and MMW? A five-way bang fest at Bamboo with Paul and his pals Star Killers, EC Twins, Spencer & Hill, and Richard Beynon.
Sunday, March 17
Snoop Lion (Formerly Snoop Dogg) Hosts Prestige Sundays
The Doggfather of West Coast rap's had a rebirth, distancing his righteous self from the negativity often linked to both his early life and musical career. There are no more "bitches in the living room getting it on," and "Mr. One Eight Seven on a motherfucking cop" has traded in his Glock for dreadlocks. Snoop's gone Rasta, mon. And it's a beautiful thing.
Tuesday, March 19

The sweetest label in music ("We are all spiritual people, free as our music, and we live for that reason") showcases some of its biggest acts.

Saturday, March 23
Pacha's 40th Anniversary Part Deux
You wouldn't travel several thousand miles across the pond for just one night of Spanish house in Ibiza, right? Why should they? Expect sets from Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Sidney Sampson, BassJackers, Hard Rock Sofa, Sebastien Drums, FireBeatz, Plastik Funk, and Luca G.
Sunday, March 24
Snoop Lion (Formerly Snoop Dogg) Hosts Prestige Sundays Part Deux
Snoop's already in town; why not host a second Sunday?
