Breakfast Club Miami. Looking for the perfect afterparty with a serving of bacon and eggs? Gary Richards, AKA Destructo, will host Breakfast Club at Wynwood's newest hot spot, 1-800-Lucky. The party promises a "secret" lineup, which sources say will include dance music's best acts. Either way, you'll spend your Saturday morning dancing off the stack of pancakes you just consumed. 5 to 10 a.m. Saturday, March 24, at 1-800-Lucky, 143 NW 23rd St., Miami; 305-768-9826; 1-800-lucky.com. Tickets cost $35 via eventbrite.com.

Green Velvet Presents La La Land Miami. "Something 'bout those little pills/Unreal, the thrills, they yield, until they kill a million brain cells." Who can forget Green Velvet's 2001 dance-floor anthem? The Relief Records artist has spun his hit off into an event series that has taken over Holy Ship!, Electric Daisy Carnival, and Electric Forest. It will make its Miami debut with Tiga, Kerri Chandler, and others at the Delano. Green Velvet says fans can "expect to hear an array of the greatest house and techno grooves from around the world." Noon Saturday, March 24, at the Delano, 1685 Collins Ave., Miami Beach; 305-672-2000; delano-hotel.com. Tickets are sold out.

Anjunadeep Open Air Miami. Far from the South Beach glitz, Above & Beyond's record label Anjunadeep will take over Gramps, Wynwood's hipster hangout. Spinning underneath the palapa will be Dom Donnelly, Eli & Fur, Yotto, and others. It's the perfect day party for revelers looking for something that doesn't feel like a poolside spring-break bash and exudes the effortless cool of its surroundings. Also, beers here are way cheaper than those at any venue across the causeway. 2 p.m. Saturday, March 24, at Gramps, 176 NW 24th St., Miami; 305-699-2669; gramps.com. Tickets are sold out.

Maceo Plex and the Black Madonna. There used to be a time when nightclubs divided their spaces into several rooms, and partygoers could wander from room to room exploring different sounds throughout their journey. Space will offer that kind of experience Saturday night when all of its venues — the Terrace, the Loft, the Ground, and Floyd — will flex their musical muscles at the same time. Maceo Plex and the Black Madonna will anchor the Terrace, and word to the wise: Don't show up until 3 or 4 a.m., because that's when the 11th Street giant really gets going. 11 p.m. Saturday, March 24, at Space, 24 NE 11th St., Miami; 786-357-6456; clubspace.com. Tickets cost $25 to $70 via ticketfly.com.

Markus Schulz. German-born producer Markus Schulz isn't a Miami native, but he has called the Magic City home for so long he's basically the Mr. 305 of dance music. So what better way to say goodbye to Miami Music Week than with an open-to-close set by Schulz himself? Though trance has seen a sudden resurgence in popularity, Schulz never abandoned the genre for EDM's greener pastures as others did. All hail the unicorn slayer! 11 p.m. Sunday, March 25, at Heart, 50 NE 11th St., Miami; 305-912-3099; heartnightclub.com. Tickets cost $40 to $60 via tickets.heartnightclub.com.
