Swedish House Mafia
October 30, 2010
Masquerade Motel Miami
A one-night-only Halloween rager with house music superstars, Swedish House Mafia, was arguably the hottest ticket of the weekend. The party took place in the eventual home of this year's Scope Art Fair in Midtown Miami, allowing organizers to use an enormous tent as a blank canvas for a few of their most insane ideas.
What we said:
If Swedish House Mafia and everyone involved proved one thing: you don't need wait for WMC or be called Ultra Music Festival in order to put on such a massive electronic music event. Here's hoping we see something similar next year.
