Every March, Miami is seized by total EDM insanity, reverberating with bass, techno, house, trance, and everything electronic.
With Ultra Music Festival (this year expanding to two weekends), Winter Music Conference, and Miami Music Week all falling within the same ten-day span, the uhntz-uhntz will be (almost) inexhaustible.
Deadmau5, Tiësto, Calvin Harris, Afrojack, Kaskade, and Armin Van Buuren, just to name a few, are gonna be headlining Ultra 2013. Of course, though, Swedish House Mafia will probably steal the show, as UMF marks the Scandinavian supertrio's last show ever.
For the rest of us who were S.O.L. and failed to snag tickets for the largest and possibly the best EDM festival on Planet Earth: Don't you worry child. It's WMC and MMW, which means the party possibilities are endlessly epic.
Whether catching Maceo Plex at Mansion, Axwell at Story, Paul Oakenfold at Arkadia, or your favorite local DJs at one of the many pool parties going down at the Clevelander, Delano, Surfcomber, Shelborne, or Shore Club, we've got you covered with where to go, who to see, and what to do during WMC.
