W Hotel in South Beach (source)
It's that time of the year again! Next week, I will be heading to Miami on Tuesday to take part in the Miami Music Week festivities that are happening all over South Beach, FL to celebrate the annual Winter Music Conference and Ultra Music Festival. Miami Music Week is by far the largest gathering of dance music fans and pros in the world that is a reflection of the growing popularity of dance music and all of its different shades and flavors around the world.
I will be staying at the gorgeous W South Beach right in the heart of South Beach to cover all of the events, meet and chat with artists, and enjoy a lot of great new music. W South Beach is the epicenter of Miami Music Week –– many of the artists visiting the city will be guests at the hotel plus W is hosting expertly-curated pool parties featuring the world's greatest DJs for fans to enjoy. I'm thrilled to share that I will be conducting some very exciting Artist#Talk events at the hotel as well.
On Thursday, March 28, I'm honored to conduct a Q&A with Dutch soundboard maestro Afrojack in conjunction with his official VIP listening party at WALL as he previews tracks from his forthcoming debut LP, Forget the World. Much more about this very special event very soon.
On Friday, March 29, I'll be moderating a panel at W South Beach that includes Swedish House Mafia and Refune Records founder Steve Angello, DJ Irie, Chris Barnes from EDM Magazine and Andy Senor, Jr., the artistic director and founder of District Stage Company in Miami. We'll be chatting about dance music, creativity and innovation.
On Saturday, March 30, I'll be sitting down with GRAMMY nominee Armin van Buuren, one of the world's greatest DJs, to talk about his current tour, the success of his most-recent album Intense and many of his other current projects.
Make sure to tune in to W South Beach's Twitter updates to find out more details about attending these events and to see exclusive photos and other bits.
Through the week, I will also catching up with Avicii, Hardwell and Martin Garrix plus newcomers The Chainsmokers, 3Lau, Audien, Blasterjaxx and Dutch duo W&W at the pool parties that are hosted at W. There's some amazing stuff happening at WALL Lounge as well including Steve Angelo's grand DECADE after-party that will feature Max Vangeli, Tim Mason and Junior Sanchez.
With so many great events scheduled, I'm hoping to find some time to enjoy a bit of beautiful South Beach as well, including some of the incredible amenities at W South Beach including Bliss Spa and WET, an outdoor heated pool. Tune in to Twitter and Instagram for all my updates from Miami.
