Ultra Week may have the bigger names and parties, but Winter Music Conference is still going to give us plenty of reasons to become 24-hour party people.
Case in point: The Vagabond's WMC lineup is so well thought out and diverse. Whether it's classic house, dubstep, or electro, the 14th Street venue seems to be aiming for a wide audience of dance music lovers.
But the real sweet spot here is WMC's official opening party March 8, featuring Def Mix with Frankie Knuckles, David Morales, and Hector Romero.
Of course, what about Ultra Week? Owner Carmel Ophir assured us that the lineup for the end of March would be released soon.
