Support the independent voice of Miami and help keep the future of New Times free.

There's no question that Miami is a bustling electronic dance music hub. We've got the three-headed beast of Winter Music Conference, Miami Music Week, and Ultra Music Festival each year, plus a club scene that never sleeps. But let's face it, the vast majority of artists headlining all these parties are from out of town. So what about our own homegrown talent?

Mike Hecked of Miami DJ duo MonStars On Broadway thinks it's about damn time we gave our locals some love and an opportunity to shine. That's why he's partnered up with Brian Perez of the Spirit of Sound Gathering to launch the first South Florida EDM Fair at The Awarehouse in Wynwood during the second weekend of June.

"I see festivals like Ultra Music Festival and feel like the locals should all have their chance to be a part of one huge festival for our local music scene," Hecked tells Crossfade. "I feel like the South Florida EDM scene is still growing. A lot of people are throwing events, so it can be a little scattered at times. But for this event, we teamed up with as many companies in Florida that wanted to be a part of something special -- almost everyone is onboard."

And with over 300 South Floridian DJs and performers on the lineup, our local talent will be fully represented without falling short of the stylistic variety at festivals like Ultra. "There is absolutely no genre discrimination at this event," Hecked explains. "It is mainly electronic music -- house, electro, breaks, drum 'n' bass, dubstep, hardstyle, etc. But we have a few acts that are outer-genre, and will accept any forms of music."

Of course, what would our local EDM scene be without the fans? "The South Florida EDM Fair is not just about amazing electronic music," Hecked says. "It's also about the amazing people who come out to celebrate their love for this music."
