It may be Steam Miami's first Winter Music Conference, but the downtown club builds steadily upon old Vagabond tradition. The new leaders are veterans of the scene, and already, the week is slammed with showcases and old favorites.
From Sunday, March 22, through Friday, March 27, it's going to be Steam's two venues engorged with 50-plus DJs and hundreds of tweaking beat addicts. Prepare your body for 50 shades of house and bass so deep you might drown. Keep your head above water and check the schedule.
The 2015 program features lineups on both the outside patio of LOT 14 and indoor shenanigans by the classic bar. As the week grows, so do the events, turning into a stream of indoor/outdoor double-stage behemoths. Back, too, is the annual STACKED event, standing as the only 18 and over event of the week.
